My mother passed away 1 year ago. Before her passing, she expressed her wishes that I inherit her jewelry and some other items.
My father is the assigned executor of her estate. I have tried asking him if anything was left to me in my mother's will and if so, why he has yet to honor it. He refuses to answer my questions, let see the will, or tell me the lawyer's name who handled her legal affairs. Very strange behavior for someone who has nothing to hide.
I am prepared to take this to court, but am not even certain if anything was bequeathed to me in my mom's will. What legal recourse do I have to see the will or ensure that my father is acting appropriately to the position of an executor?
