My wife's mother passed away @1 year ago (2005). I (son-in law of the deceased) have in my possession my mother-in-law's last signed and dated will as I was named by her as executor of the estate. Because my wife is chronically ill and I live in another state (the deceased resided the last days of her life in Texas), her biological son (also in Texas) was overseeing her care (in a nursing home) and was paying her medical fees as necessary from his mother's savings. When the mother passed, she was buried in Texas and in the past 12 months, no mention has been made as to the liquidation and disposition of her remaining assets, nor has any new or revised will come to light. Twice, I have formally requested information from the son of the deceased (as executor) pertaining to my wife's portion of her mother's estate > as clearly defined in the last known signed will. No response has followed from my wife's sibling and I fear the worst; that possibly because my wife is ill that she may have been purposely ignored and the assets have already been divided by her 3 remaining siblings without regard to the last wishes of their mother. Is legal action justified in this situation?What is the name of your state?
