My brother is PR. He wants all heirs to pay the probate attorney (from proceeds of the homestead sale). He wants me to sign to this. The attorney represents the PR, so doesn't he pay their legal fees? He's getting a good salary. Why should I pay an attorney who doesn't represent me? My brother says the will allows for the estate to pay the attorney.... BUT, there are no liquid assets in the estate. There is only money in the homestead, but it is has passed outside probate. It is not subject to attorney or PR fees or creditors' claims.
So, who should pay the probate attorney? Shouldn't the PR, since they represent him? And for that matter, who should pay the PR? It seems like I am not obliged to.
PS He wants it in writing, agreeing to pay a portion of PR and attorney fees.
