A: There's obviously more facts that need to come out. Most attorneys will do some provisional fact-finding work for you at a reasonable rate so that you can make an educated decision whether you have a case to make or not. There are usually many variables going on in an estate, and it's essential to gather the information before jumping into a cross petition or objections- whatever the case may be. Good luck
