Minneapolis, MN asked in Probate for Minnesota

Q: I’m 23 who lost both of her parents. Due to my age my aunt took over the estate- and I believe she is hiding/taking $.

I just got the probate and distribution paperwork and there are many discrepensies of money that was paid out during probate. Ever since she took over my moms estate she’s been vacationing getting her sons new cars and herself a new car. I just have gone through enough I don’t want this to be true. But after reading some clauses such as “she’s keeping in an account under her name 16000 Incase of a future bill to the estate and if that doesn’t happen in 4 years I get that money back?” And another one saying “we cannot make any claims and she is free from any future claims and to hold her harmless from any incurred, including reasonable attorneys fees.” At this point I just do not know what’s real or not and that because I’m only 23 and don’t know these terms and she’s a paralegal who knows what she’s doing I’m concerned. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you. -Bailey

A: Hire an attorney without delay to look into this for you. It is possible you have already lost your rights due to expiration of the statute of limitations but if you have any time left it’s not much. Don’t post any more questions seeking free legal advice. No attorney in this or any other online forum can give you advice regarding YOUR particular circumstances. Make an appointment with a fiduciary litigation attorney and bring with you all if the information you have gathered. Best of luck to you.
