Re: will

I suppose making him produce the actual will is the first step. Once you see it you can determine whether it is valid or not. The will has to be admitted to the Probate Court in the county where dad died in order to actually transfer assets, and it is in that proceeding that you and your siblings would/could challenge the will on a number of grounds. You will need to see an attorney experienced in probate court matters if you want to do this. Spend about an hour meeting with a lawyer and see what your options might be.

Good luck,
