Q. I gave a lawyer $1500 to probate my mothers estate. It’s been 2 mo and he has not filed any paperwork. Is this normal?
A: In Kansas, the process can take some time. That said, if two months have passed since he was supposed to file documents, and if he still hasn't after your recent phone call, you might be wise to at least touch base with another attorney. If the first one didn't do any work, you shouldn't have too much trouble getting your money back. Worst case scenario, you could file an ethics complaint -- but hopefully that could be avoided. I'd encourage you to reach out to another attorney to explore options.
Q. Do I contact his lawyer or wait as I just recently was m
A: Reaching out to the lawyer would be a great starting point. I'd encourage you to do that!
Q. K.S.A. 59-1507b - Small Estates Affidavit was filed with Leavenworth, KS Probate court. But something is missing. What?
A: Generally speaking, there's no need to actually "file" the Small Estate Affidavit. It can be shown directly to the bank or other institution, and they transfer the assets pursuant to the affidavit. On the other hand, if probate administration is needed due the nature of the estate, you would not want/need/use the Small Estate Affidavit at all, and there would be a number of other pleadings required. I would highly suggest the help of a KS attorney if you actually need to be appointed as Administrator.
