I am ready to file and have been told my an attorney that I should file for both consecutively. They are wanting a retainer of $4K and I'm pretty certain my brother will use dad's $$ to contest. I simply cannot afford it. All I'm looking for is transparency but my brother(s) will not even return my call/letters. So I won't nag, I'm putting this in God's hands and filing on my own I suppose. Any pearls of wisdom from similar situations in the Mitten?
