A: No way to say for sure and not enough facts to base an opinion on. You need to consult with an attorney in your area. You do not say what was done wrong by the funeral home. There is apparently more to the story that is needed to evaluate the case. Best advice consult with a lawyer in the area (county) where the funeral home is located.

A: You need to talk to an attorney. It will depend on a variety of factors, one of which is whether the funeral home knew that the will was false when it was accepted. Also, as Mr. Williamson stated, more information is required relating to damages and what was done incorrectly. You should talk to a probate attorney.
