how can someone get limited letters of administration when there was a valid will and a trust? Now, does a deposition get taken? How costly is appeals? Can I get my legal fees back if I win in appeals? Can a judge reverse his decision?
Judges decisions get reversed from time to time on appeal.
Legal fees for an appeal are at the discretion of either the appellate court or the trial court - by your petition and request. Certain findings need to be established - it is not automatic even if you win the appeal.
Apparently, someone petitioned the court for 'limited' administration. As a representative of the Estate, a deposition can be taken.
Contact an estate/probate attorney. The attorney can review the case file and better advise you.
