My mother died intestate. My brother was appointed dependant 10 days after I was made aware he was applying, far past time to file a protest - on a date different that that stated for hearing.
My brother failed to care for the estate, file a inventory on time or pay utility bills and was removed after a year when I asked for a hearing to do so.
The Judge stated that he would not allow me to be administrator because " I couldn't get along with and work with my brother".
The estate is small ($30,500 in real property no valueable household furnishings) and cannot afford any large attorney or administrative fees.
I am guilty of nothing. I bear the normal amount of animosity toward my brother that any heir would under the circumstances.
Isn't independant admin still possible?This is a new judge with no law background. I would think he wouldn't be able to refuse to consider me just because I asked for my brother to be removed. Isn't my brother and his bond liable for my costs to remove him? I would assume this would be "short and easy" work for a local attorney as 2 offers have been made to purchase the property and all claims made against the estate are by the two heirs.
