Lawyer's, Assistant
my father received a letter from a lawyer regarding a property that my grandma owned who is deceased about an application for probate of will of Deceased mother and issuance of letters testamentary that my step sister is the applicant letter also states that my father and his 2 brothers are the heirs. pursuant to texas estates code section 258.051 and failing to provide will of the deceased it will pass to my step sister. the thing nobody was ever shown the will after deceased passed nor was anybody contacted. my step sister had statutory durable power of attorney of my grandmother as it states in power of attorney letter signed as long as deceased was presently living.
JA: Since estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: texas property is in corpus where as to my father and i reside in san Antonio but also i currently have power of attorney of my father due to a recent stroke causing him to have paralysis on his right side and damage to part of the right side of the brain. i only now just received tis letter along with my uncles after i notified my step sister the condition of our father. just took a couple days to get this letter after notifying her
JA: What documents or supporting evidence do you have?
Customer: as to what?
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: really trying to get legal advice of what i need to do if there is anything i should be fighting for if wrongfully taken from my father and as i stated no will was ever shown but my dad and uncles were aware of the will their mother had created for them when she passed but never saw or was shown the will. my step sister made everyone believe everything was left to her and there was no reason to ask about the will or question anything as she had power of attorney of deceased only while she was presently living as stated in power of attorney she had signed.
