My grandmother died intestate - without a will. Prior to her dying she had been declared legally incompetent. I and my brother are her legal heirs. We both have a 50% interest in what is in her estate. 1st question. Do we both have to agree on how funds that are due to the estate are collected before an attorney can legally collect funds that are due? 2nd question. Even though she died intestate there are documents that clearly outline her wishes in the event of her death. My brother is not in agreement with the wishes of my grandmother and is only concerned about himself. Do I have any legal grounds to take him to court utilizing the documents that were signed by her prior to being declared incompetent. My concern is carrying out my Grandmothers wishes.
