A: I'm sorry for the loss of your father. This is something that the attorneys in the Probate and Estate Planning categories would know the most about, but your post remains open for three weeks. There's no guarantee that every question is picked up, but you could try reposting under those categories. If you still don't receive a response, you could reach out to attorneys who work in those areas of law. Good luck
