I have a close friend who found about $700 in unclaimed moneys (thru Texas Unclaimed Property) that belonged to his deceased grandfather. I, as 3rd disinterested party, have spent hrs and money on research and documents to help claim said property. Legally, it's to be divided 1/3 to son, 1/3 to daughter, and 1/6 to each of two grandchildren, whom's mother is deceased . Most of family is estranged, and it will be difficult to collect my 15% fee, plus expenses, from each person. The comptrollers office said they need all persons addresses to send out each person's check, so they will receive their free money and not bother with paying me. Is there a way to have my fee cut from the top and sent to myself; and how?
