I was a caregiver to my Mother. I lived with her in her home. I took care of my Mother in her home for many years. I lived with her also . She had renal failure and colon cancer. I have one sister that didnt help much. She worked full time as an Lpn. I worked until three years ago. When my mom got diagnosed with colon cancer and had surgery. I lost my.job because of all the call ins I had to miss work often to rush my mom to the er. I paid property taxes and rent while I lived there. I have no receipts to prove I.paid rent. After my.Mom died,because she had no will, I got evicted from my.home by my.sister. I was broke with no.money to afford a lawyer. And couldnt get legal aid in time for the court date. I was evicted and only.had ten days to vacate my home. My mothers home that I lived in with her. The house was sold for way less than.what is was worth because my sister as executor didnt want to.care for.the home. I am waiting for money from probate from the sale of the house. Which will not be enough money to purchase another home. What legal rights do I have to sue my.sister . I feel I am entitled to.more than half of this money. She was rarely there to help in the care of my Mother. She didnt lose her job due.ti caring for a parent. And I and my daughters are homeless after all that we have done for my Mother.Is there any hope in my.case?

I missed that she died without a Will. That really doesn't change my advice, but it does make me confused about what authority sister had to evict you and sell the house.

Homeless67, since your Mom passed with no Will, then the State laws come into play during Probate.   The State will decide who will get what.

What confuses me is that your Sister sold the house while the estate was in Probate.   If there is no Will the Executor usually has "No Power of Sale", but maybe your State is different.   The value of the house needs to be part of Probate, and usually it requires a licensed Appraisal to get a current value.

Make an appointment to talk to someone in Probate Court who can answer your questions, since you are listed as an heir.   They will advise you on what you can do, if anything.

The reality is that you have no written proof of any money you spent and the Will must be distributed according to the way it was written, second guessing about what is fair doesn't come in to it. Unless you are fighting over a huge estate I would let it go, the cost to bring a suit forward would likely eat up any extra money you could win, and if you lose you would still have to pay the lawyer and court costs. I'm sorry.
