Debra, Expert

I know your question is important to you and I will be giving it the time and attention it deserves.

Sometimes responses and replies take time, so I ask you to be courteous and patient to allow me the time to type answers to you and also to others. At times I may even have to do some research.

I am sorry for your loss and  to hear of this difficult situation.

Are you saying that the executors failed to adhere to the terms of the Will?

Here is the answer to your query. Please do not hesitate to ask any follow up questions related to this response and know that I will respond as soon as I can.

Unfortunately, legal aid does not cover civil matters. It only covers criminal law and family law issues.

However, if there is a lot of money at stake a lawyer will take your case on a contingency fee basis or on the basis that they will get paid  after you receive the money you're entitled to receive so you shouldn't think you can't get legal assistance here and that's clearly what you need.

You need an estate litigation lawyer to step in, threaten a lawsuit and seek a court order if necessary. It would be life-changing for you based on what you're telling me.

You can review the law society's suggestions on how to find a lawyer. Depending on where you live you may be able to consult with a lawyer for $25 for the first half hour:
