Rights of Heirs
A relative has died in which an immediate family member is the heir. A cousin has been named executor of the estate. There is also an attorney involved. The heir has not heard from the executor or attorney to date. The family member died in December 2001 in New Jersey. The heir lives in Florida. Is this normal? When should the heir expect to hear from the attorney? Is there a form the heir can send to the attorney requesting an update?
