This is a question that you should be asking the attorney who is helping you with the malpractice lawsuit. If you did not obtain any advice before filing the lawsuit, then that was a very big mistake. You could be wasting a lot of money.

So my father has passed away, and I was labeled power of attorney. I have the death certificates, all the paperwork from his funeral services, and an open probate case for the house. I basically just need to know if I have authority to demand rent from people who resided in the house before my... Read more »
The power of attorney automatically ended when your father passed away. If you have been appointed executor or personal representative or administrator of his estate then, yes, you have the authority to enforce any existing lease, including demanding rent pursuant to the lease. Or you can evict...Read more »
I need information on my parents who passed away and sister who is controlling the will and it's not allowing me any information on it of their state of their will of their house of any funds or any anything for that matter. What's the best way how to handle this matter?
So I lived with my grandma since I was 5 days old. She wanted the house to go to me when she died but they will got lost somehow. It's a really crazy story but yeah. I've tried having a lawyer and it didnt work out, came down to getting one last signature for probate and he wouldnt sign... Read more »
I recommend that you consult with a probate attorney before taking any action. Since you have been ordered to post a bond, your appointment to serve as personal representative will not be made until the bond is posted. Any action attempted prior to your court appointment is unwise and will be...Read more »

I am the personal rep of her estate. Will I need to do Deed of Distribution and quitclaim deeds for the two brothers? Also, one is in jail so what happens to his part of the buyout and how do I get those forms signed?
My question is about his property. He had a truck, motorcycle, personal items and a bank account. My grandma said what's in the account he owes her so she gets that and she said the truck and other items aren't going anywhere until she says so. Is that legal? Is there something I have to...

Unfortunately there may not be a simple answer to your questions. Assuming your father was not married, he had no other children, and he did not have any joint bank accounts with others, then you may be the sole heir.
My stepmom and father passed away within two weeks of each other. My dad survived her by 10 days. The deed to their house is set up for right to survivorship. For probate purposes is my dad the sole owner of the house (since she passed away before him) or is it community property (split equally in... Read more »
The answer to this question is in a reading of the deed. That document controls what happens.
For most Arizona deeds for married couples, the title is held in community property with an additional paragraph or page that says upon death the share goes to the surviving spouse. Older deeds...Read more »

I am answering here just to let you know that this is not a family law question. This is a question for a probate attorney. Family law refers to divorce and child custody cases. I think that because it was labeled family law, you haven't received an answer because this isn't an issue...Read more »
What you describe does not sound like a holographic will, which is a will entirely in the handwriting of the person making it and signed by that person (even if not witnessed or notarized). So I believe that the short answer to your question is that the testator died without a will. As such,...Read more »

If nothing was filed with the courts, then they are only named as Executors, they have no power as they are not court appointed. I presume you are living in the property, but you need to speak with an attorney sooner rather than later. They are taking advantage of you, not following proper...Read more »

Typically you’ll need to record the deed of distribution with the Recorder’s Office to put the home in your name. You may need the assistance of an experienced probate attorney to ensure all was done correctly.
