You should call an attorney who can look up the case in the CARE system. It seems unlikely that the Court would have any interest in pursuing the case; but, there is no way to know if you are good without determining what occurred in the case.

You can't disinherit your spouse. So regardless of what the will says, your father has a right to the first $75,000 + half of whatever is left over. Do you know if they had a prenuptial agreement? Probably not right?

The advice the attorney gave you is correct up to a point. It depends on how much is in the bank account. If there is 100k or more, then you will have to take it through probate in order to get the distribution from them. Do you have any idea how much is in the account?
No, if the title was held in the "A or B" fashion then it means that you owned it as a joint tenants. Joint tenancy carries with it a right of survivorship which means that upon the death of one joint tenant (your mom) you inherit the entire property (the car).

Executor won't give copies of probate papers or any papers regarding the sale of her home. Now he refuses to answer our calls or texts and says will only contact us through mail. He has been talking to one beneficiary and not the other two.
