A: The answer to your specific question is Sui Juris means 'of age' and is usually referring to beneficiaries of a will or trust -- all of them are now 'of age' and can represent themselves, as opposed to a minor who would need someone to represent his interests. The REMAINDER of your question is WAY too fact specific and complicated to do justice to in a forum such as this, You NEED to hire a local attorney to represent you in this matter to insure that all aspects of the case -- including those you don't mention here!-- are handled properly!

Seek local representation!
