My brother was executive of Estate.He took (stole)most of the money.The lawyer(his friend) in charge of it,would not tell us,until my brother filed chapter 7.and what ever money is left in trust the lawyer is taking.On March 3,I got letter from lawyer, that Executive was short of $12,000.00,only.when the last year all the money was gone.
You can always employ an attorney in that county to review the estate. Conversion of assets is not normally discharged IF he "took" money that is a criminal action. You can always ask the court to convert the estate to supervised and object to the accounting. I would recommend your getting a probate attorney involved, and if there are little assets, the court can remove the PR and appoint you and IF the attorney misguided you the new estate attorney can help.
Agreed. Have an attorney representing your interests as an heir review the matter for you.
You need to consult a probate attorney and the local prosecutor immediately. The brother and the lawyer have committed a crime if you can prove what you claimed in the question. The lawyer would be subject to disciplinary action by the Indiana Supreme Court. If the brother was insolvent so as to be eligible for chapter 7, he should have resigned as executor [a fiduciary appointment] and the lawyer should have advised such. Sounds like a huge mess.
