Getting Information from the Executor of Estate
My sister has applied for Executor of Estate for my deceased Father; prior to his death, she was the Conservator. Now I see there is a Petition for Probate of Lost Will. She is not being forthcoming with information about the proceedings of the Probate process with the other 5 beneficiaries. I haven't been successful in obtaining a copy of the will, (now I hear it is a lost will), and I know I can file for Special Notice, but how can I get information about this case without her attorney or herself knowing about it. This is a very sensitive family subject, but we all would like to be more informed as to what is going on, as she had a nervous breakdown at the time of death, and we fear things are not being handled in the best interest of all parties. Do I need to get my own attorney to help me get information, or are there resources available to me. We are all concerned. I have accessed the case proceedings on the Internet, but it is all very legal jargon, and just makes me have more questions. I need an interpretor or somebody to help me understand what I am reading. Any advice would be appreciated.
