Legal Question in Wills and Trusts in West Virginia

Beneficiaries rights

Father died in July.Sister is executrix.4 children named in will to split estate equal between all 4.father had 1/2 acre of river property that someone says that he sold to them 2 yrs ago .His signature is clearly forged(lawyer sister-executrix)hired acknowledge differnt signature.didnt't press the issue .sister requested private meeting w/lawyer.other siblings always attened before issue of property.we were asked to leave.Is this legal? father made it clear to many(even people who would'nt benefit from land )that he didn't sign anything.

Executrix said father got checks she signed (was allowed)

I think and cashed, gave money to father.No proof!other things are questionable as to honesty. do we have the right to see all bills , paper work and things that pertain to his estate. He would want everything to be equal

He also had a business that executrix was named as owner but she pays bills from the estate account because the credit card bill comes in his name? Is this legal? not a huge estste,but not small either. What do you think??

This is a fairly complicated question. In fact it raises a lot of questions. You need to consult a lawyer. He or she will tell you what your rights are as well as what the duties of the executrix are.
