Dad died no will, no executor, sister taking over possible fraud.
My Dad died 2 months ago. He has 3 grown children - I am the youngest child. My Mom died 20 years ago and had significant assets that all went to my Dad. My Mom and Dad had old wills done in the 1970s giving equal shares to all 3 kids. When my Mom died there was no probate - my Dad got over a million dollars from my Mom. My brother and I got nothing. My Dad got remarried 2 years later to a lady with 2 grown kids. My sister had my Dad put her name on all his accounts when he had health issues - he gave her POA and his medical directive. He had an accident, got injured, and my sister made the decision to stop all his treatnent 1 day after surgery - she removed his chrst tube, refused a ventilator, took him off insulin and BP meds - he was i jured with punctured lung - not terminal - he was 83 and could have recovered. She sent him to hospice the next day - his heart stopped and he died in hospice. She did not talk to me or ny brother during this time or tell us what was really going on with my Dad. She now claims Dad had no Will. He had a Will - it was outdated and done prior to remarriage. If there is no Will there is no Executor. His wife filed a streamlined probate form for estates less than 15k. She omitted several valuable assets to keep amount under 6000. My sister already took his valuables and his computer - I don't believe my Dad was broke. My sister refuses to show me my Dad's or my Mom's wills. Now she is trying to threaten me by saying I won't get Dad's car if I don't follow her rules - ir I give up my right to his car. My sister has no legal authority to handle his estate and it is not up to her to decide what I get from my Dad. I need to get legal help - she is now evicting ne from her rental house and told me I can't look through any of my Dad's stuff when I go to get the car (it is at his wife's house with all his stuff). I know the probate form they submitted is fraudulent - it left off a coin collection, all his tools and power equipment, and other assets. I thiink my Dad had accounts my sister put her name on even his wife doesn't know about. I want his estate probated and an Executor assigned - his accounts and assets listed. His assets need to be aporaised - he had a gun collection worth thousands. I don't have the money to hire a lawyer - but I need to challenge all this. Do I have a legal right or can I get a court order to see my Mom and Dad's wills? Is my Dad's old will invalid since he got remarried? What actions can I take to legally have his estate investigated to find out his real assets and to see if assets have been misrepresented, stolen, fraudulently stated on probate forms? My sister is acting like the Executor and I need to take immediate legal action. I will try to get legal aid through some pro boni agencies in my area.
