Q: my sister power of attorney. Dad's will He told everyone there part separately. I read the will. After he passed the
Will wasn't followed. Me and my brother contacted her and asked what was going on and She said with what. What dad left each of us. She said there was nothing. I read the will when it was drawn up. And my father never changed it that I know and am sure of. What do I do.
A: Hire a probate attorney to help you probate his estate. The court can order all property returned to be properly distributed.
Tim Akpinar agrees with this answer
A: The Power of Attorney became void upon your father's passing, so your sister wouldn't have the legal authority to act under the POA beyond your father's lifetime. If she used the POA to transfer assets after his passing, there may be liability. I agree with Nina and would strongly suggest you hire an attorney in Kansas. Happy to help, if needed!
