A: What do you mean that your Mother sold her Estate? Until she is dead there is no Estate. Is this based on some instrument of conveyance? If so, is the purchaser pursuing the property? You definitely need to consult with a WY attorney, search the title to any real property and look into her banking (especially the signature cards). Even if she was paid to sign something, it is probably unenforceable. But if she went ahead and conveyed under a Deed, added someone to the account or executed a post dated check, those transfers may be effective.
