Jackson, MS asked in Estate Planning for Mississippi

Q: Does the administratrix has complete control over the estate without the other next of kin opinion of what to be sold

I like to know can they make decisions without the other next of kin opinions on it because I’m dealing with that now. Selling and taking possession of everything and the judge just rulings on everything they ask for and we don’t know nothing until I go to the courthouse and ask for copies of documents filed on the estate. I’m in need of help and answer because they are taking everything from us

A: Generally, the administrator must sell everything in order to generate cash to pay creditors and to divide the assets to distribute equally and fairly between the heirs.
