Lawyer's, Assistant
Hello, I am needing help in doing a probate but I have no idea where to start.
JA: To start, can you confirm the state you're in? These matters can differ depending on location.
Customer: Texas
JA: Thanks for all these details. What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: Well, it will be two years next month when my mother passed away and I have one brother that was going to be the executor, but he officially quit and wants nothing to do with anything or any of us brother's. There are four of us. I had another brother that was going to do the probate but said he couldn't do it for whatever reason, so here I am now, but my wife and I went to an attorney that handles probate, but we have an appointment next week.
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: Will I be speaking with a lawyer from Texas? And yes, I have a sister n law that put the house I live in that is still under my deceased stepfather's and mother's name, but when the contract to the house was sold to another company I went to sign paperwork to have the house in my name, but when the owner of that contract passed the house went to what is now called "The Fold" and I have to keep talking with the owner of the house now who knows nothing of what his brother was doing. My water has been turned off because I tried to switch it to my name but I had to have proof that I'm buying or leasing the house and the owner said no and that my mother's name should still be on all the bills. I have another sister in law that wants to do a small estate whatever that is, but she is nothing but trouble and just wants her hands in my mother's business or rather mine and my brother's business. Anyways, I've been paying on the house for the past 8 years with only one year left to pay on and I have been making payments on my mother's car but I can't seem to get any answer's as to how much longer I have to pay on it or when are the payments due, but I have been making the payments monthly without due. Also, the nosy sister n law says she is a co-signer for when my mother got the car in Florida but I don't know how true that is. Oh and my mother does own a house that is fully paid for.
