My Grandfather passed in 2004. My Uncle had an Affidavit of Heir ship drawn up on my Grandfather for an asbestos claim. Can my Uncle actually do this and use an Affidavit of Heir ship to get the money ? Now my Grandmother passed Jan. 2016 and there is an Affidavit of Heir ship, my Grandfather and Grandmother owned a small old house and 20 acreas and now the Uncle had my Grandmother sign over the land/house for $10. !! and she could hard see or hear. The Uncle was the POA and we cannot find the paper work on that and the Uncle is not wanting to read the Will ( if there is one ) or cooperate. I know a Probate / Elder Law Lawyer will be needed, any Pro Bono Lawyers available out there OR someone who can help w/ payments perhaps ? this was unexpected ! thank you for your time........and help ! :)
You should contact your local bar association and see if you are qualified for pro bono legal services.
