I am being sent a wrongful death settlement agreement form to sign along with my 2 siblings. We are to say how each one of us should like to have the proceeds of this wrongful death case divided among ourselves. At one point we were all talking, and agreed 1/3 each. Now that we are not talking, I don't know how to sign. I know If we all don't agree it could tie it up in court for a long time. I was told California was state that divides up among each of us. I have no idea how this all works, not sure each one of us had a very close relationship with deceased, but does the firm have the right to determine or if it is all 3 of us who decide how do we know what the other is deciding if no one will talk to the other.
