A: In addition to what Mr. Claus has pointed out, as a beneficiary, if the personal representative (executor) does not provide the requested documentation, you have the right to file with the court (in the probate case case) and ask the Judge for assistance in getting documentation. You also have the right to ask that the administration be supervised, meaning that before an asset, such as the house, is sold the court has to review the proposed transaction and make sure it is being sold for fair market value. If the personal representative does not comply with the court's orders to provide documentation, the court has several options to obtain compliance. At the most extreme, the personal
representative can be replaced.
You need to start with making the request for documentation in writing. Your next step will be determined by the response you get. If you feel it needs to be raised with the court, you should definitely find an experienced probate attorney to work with. ... Read More

While you certainly have the right to refuse and make them file a court case first, that is not necessarily what is going to be best for your family. Legal counsel can help you decide which path is
best in your particular situation. This is a very serious situation and should be addressed as such. The wrong choice could potentially lead to catastrophic results. ... Read More
A: You need to file a motion with the court to temporarily modify the parenting time while he is in rehab and file it very soon. That is step one. Unless there is something in your orders addressing this kind of situation and allowing your ex to designate someone to "use" his parenting time when he cannot, she doesn't have any rights under the order. Even if she does have some rights under the order, she cannot prevent you from having your scheduled parenting time. You want to ask the court for the change before you do anything else.
If she refuses you your regularly scheduled parenting time, you are entitled to enforce your time and go get your children, with assistance from
law enforcement if necessary.
Self-help measures may be looked down on by the court. It would be a very good idea to get help from an attorney, as these situations can get very messy very quickly. If it is handled badly, your choices could even come back and work against you in the future. ... Read More
