The probate attorney wants me to sign a waiver I disagree with prior to having estate assets distributed to me as a beneficiary. Therefore I desire to file a Motion to Compel Distribution. Should the Motion include any disagreements in how the assets are to be distributed? For example, I disagree with the accounting, but not the inventory. The accounting was never filed in court, but the inventory was. I also disagree with how the assets were distributed, for example, family albums were supposed to be split in half, but the executor ripped them apart, took 80% and left me 20% of the left over crap. Should that be mentioned in the Motion to Compel or is that something I have to take care of as a civil suit?
Retain a Probate attorney to help you File the Motion. Also file a Motion to Compel an Account and if it is not acceptable file a Motion in Opposition to Distribution. Good Luck!
Do not wait to handle it in a civil suit, this is what probate is for.
Every legal matter is fact specific, and there are often nuances in every case. This is intended for comment only, and does not create an attorney client relationship.
I agree with attorneys Potter and Hill.
The answer given does not imply that an attorney-client relationship has been established and your best course of action is to have legal representation in this matter.
