I was named PR of my grandmothers estate. Since her death I have found out that my aunt who had been caring for her spent all of grandma's money (approx $225,000) and nothing is left but debt. All of the heirs agree that we need to hire an attorney but none of us can afford it at this time. Can I sell some assets prior to initiating the probate process? As it stands now there isn't even enough $ to pay the filing fees.
