What is the name of your state? Massachusetts
My Dad passed away 7 months ago, my brother is the executor. Nothing has been done to settle the estate to date that my sister and I know about. He left a simple will, I believe, dividing his possessions, checking/savings account and home equally between us. Is there any time guidelines that an executor must follow? Do we get to see the will by a certain date? Can an executor just sit on an estate indefinately? My brother is sick with grief and has emotional issues. Does the law set time guidelines for settling estates.
