A: Do you have an attorney? If you have an attorney representing you, then please discuss this with him. If you do not have an attorney, then please use the Justia search function and look for succession/probate attorneys in your area, set up a consultation or 2, discuss your issues, obtain your options and then hire an attorney if necessary. Good luck.
