My father recently passed and while there is a will, it has never been read or even acknowledged. My sister and brother took my mother, who has dementia, and all the proceeds of the estate(they claim it will all go to Mom's care). They have effectively cut me out of all proceedings and I haven't been able to speak to my mother in three months. They sold all the property, except my father's car, which my brother claimed. I know my father told me that we were all treated equally in his will. Is it possible for them to settle the estate without the will being read? Can they cut me out like this?
