I am not sure if this is the right thing to do, is meeting both parties Realtor and my sister at Mom's house. any advice? I have twin 10-year old's and I am a widow myself and not working. What do you think will happen and how does this work.
My guess is that your sister is planning to list and sell your mother's home as part of her handling of the estate, or she wants to discuss with you the value of the home for her / you to keep as part of the division of assets of the estate. My suggestion is that you can meet with her and her...Read more »

You may file an application with the Court that issued the joint custody order in NJ. If the out of state...Read more »
