What to do next?

This post isn’t paranormal related, well maybe it might be because of all the unussual problems associated with it. I have been trying to sell a house and land that was left to me by a family member passing away. I have been through four lawyers who have just up and excused themselves from this case. Two family members whom were appointed executors of this case are now being uncooperative. My wife and I are are now having a very hard time because of this situation.

What would you, the reader, if you’ve experianced anything simular to this, do about this situation?

I am now in contact with yet another lawyer who is very interested in this case and is asking all the right questions. I suspect there is a sum of money in the inheratence that was never disclosed to me, but should have been by law, and just maybe a family member knows this and is trying to stall this case to get to it.

What do you think? Any input to this would be valued!

    Mike, I have personal experiences with similar situations. This is a very common problem whereby family members take control of an estate and exclude other relatives from the shares they are entitled to. Based on what I have seen in the cases I have been involved with, the cleanest path might be to have your attorney file suit against them and then obtain their financial records under discovery. During depositions, your attorney can ask them under oath about any undisclosed amounts in the inheritance. If they refuse to produce documents, or you believe that the information is incomplete, your attorney can issue a subpoena duces tecum to produce records or face sanctions by the court. Good luck. Be tough! Don’t give up!
