A: This is an estate question - better submitted to an estate law specialist. Family law attorneys specialize in divorce, post-divorce, domestic violence matters, custody and support issues, and related type claims in the family court system. I gather someone has passed and there is a dispute over access to the property of the person who passed. While I am familiar with the issue, you are better to address it with a certified NJ estate law attorney - not just a lawyer who claims to have experience with estate law issues. If anything, I would reach out to an estate law specialist for a consultation to review your materials and your claims - it will be the best investment you can make and potentially help you short cut the process.
