My brother was our step-grandfathers caregiver for 9 years. He recently put him in a nursing home because he was falling. Step-grandfathers lawyer has gone to nursing home and took copy of the Will, My cousin broke into the house that brother cohabitated with step grandfather. She took all brother paperwork and the will. We go to the courthouse, the will was picked up by the lawyer in Sept. Step-grandfather died in October. Brother was payee with Social Security Adm. My brother has no way of getting a copy of will. Can he put a lien on the house to recoup his losses, he paid property taxes, electric,water,sewer, cable, property insurance. The lawyer seems to be trying to steal this property from my brother. Is there any way that brother could petition the court to force lawyer to bring the will back to the courthouse. This has never gone into probate, the county attorney said it should have already been in probate. He told us if we could get copy of the will he would probate it. I don't know what to do?
