“My older sister died one year ago and her estate is currently being probated in our local court. I just discovered this fact from my younger brother who shared with me the court papers and to my surprise I was not included as an heir nor had I ever been served notice by the estate administrator (who is my older brother). How can I stop this process until I can get listed as an heir?”

Answer:  You should retain an attorney in your  state as this may vary, but generally, you would need to file objections to the will.  If  the court date has passed, write to  the clerk and inquire as to what  you need to do.

To locate attorneys in your state who can help you with this matter, I would recommend that you search the ElderCare Matters listing of experts at www.ElderCareMatters.com/statechapters.htm.
