Marrero, LA asked in Estate Planning and Real Estate Law for Louisiana

Q: How do I withdraw funds from the registry of Orleans Parish court? I need to do this as soon as possibly

I'm not sure how much nor the status of the case. I received a message that it was in there. My siblings had the heir's property partitioned sometime last year. I'm sure it isn't much and would like to withdraw it on my own if possible are there special forms that I need to use or can I write a letter?

A: Depending on the status, you want to have an Order signed by the Judge stating that you are entitled to withdraw/receive those funds from the registry. Depending on the status and amount, it might be best to have a lawyer represent you and accomplish this.
