What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? North Dakota.
Many yrs ago, my grandmother, while living, put her farmland into the names of her 4 children, (my father/3 sisters). Two sisters put their land up as collateral to help one of their husbands with his farm/financial problems. He ultimately lost his farm, and as a result, the 2 sisters lost their share of the farm. The land was never divided as to who got what part or parcel. The third sister lives in another state and has Alzhiemers. The bank involved went under.
My grandmother recently passed away, and my father, having an 8th grade education, has no idea how to handle the business end of selling his share of the land, or if he even HAS to sell it. We would like to know what his options are in this matter, and what kind of attorney we need to hire, if necessary. Any advice you can offer is greatly appreciated as to steps we should take. We have no idea where to go from here. Thanks so much.
