What is the name of your state? Maine
My mother passed away 3 yrs ago. My sister was named as personal rep in the will. She told me that all bills have been paid except the lawyer who handled the will and the taxes. I have asked for an accounting of bills paid, what the estate owns,ect and she is giving me a hard time about that. At the closing of the house, just last week, she took the proceeds and put $49,000 in a checking account in the estates name and her name for lawyer fees and taxes which is not expected to be that much money.She called it "easy access money" She also put $100,000 in a CD, thus tying up any dispersments of the estate. She said she will give it out "when she feels like it" She also said she will give it out at $5000 and $10,000 intervals "so we won't have to pay taxes" She NEVER consulted any of us(4) about this deposit, she just did it. Is this legal? There are no minors involved. We are all grown with families. Please help!
