Hi, I have an ongoing issue regarding my son's fathers death. We never married, our son lived with me, we shared legal and I had the main physical custodial residence. Any way, the father was ill, and found out he was terminal 2 months before he passed. He was told he had 6 months. He was in the process of writing up a will, I was checking in on my son, worried about him and noticed paper with about 3 headings on, I presume was starting a will. Anyway, the dads brother, took over things while dad was in hospice, and he handled the arrangements (i'm sure he had health care poa) but the brother also took over disbursing money and possessions that he knew would go to the other children (4, 18 and over) and the dads car, which dad told our son he could have, the uncle took and titled in his name (the uncles name) and took money and told me he put the money into an account in his (uncle and wifes) name with our son as beneficiary. Non of this went thru probate as I was expecting it to have been done, and the uncle says he was the executor. (obviously he thinks this is correct and I said he was wrong and he said I know nothing). So, now, my son needs $600 to get his license, he is 16.5 now, and he asked uncle for it but uncle wants me to pay half. Now, there is 9000 in this account, and I can't afford even half of the $600, so my son can't get his license. Also, he won't give the car to my son until he gets his license. He told me he gave the other children their money (all over 18 from a previous marriage). Uncle also took the boat and truck and titled it to himself. Also, gun collection, all of the pictures of our family, etc. So all of this happened since the death, july 2006. Now here we are, April 2007, he sends papers to my son asking court to be appointed and open the probate case, saying the estate is only $1467. I called probate and they say I can not do anything about the vehicle, does uncle have to list all the things he has done so far? Can I contest and ask for everything I know of to be listed on the inventory? Sorry so long, just trying to be clear. Thanks for being here.
