In a word, HOW? I’ve googled and called and looked all over for the forms needed to file a succession for my father’s estate. There is a very simple, legal will but not much help out there. I was told just the filing fee was $395 which is more than the estate has! Can someone point me in the direction of the proper forms for filing a testate unsupervised will please? The only hang up is he house my father lived in, which was deeded to both of us with rights of survivorship. There’s no real value because the mortgage is only 18 months old. There’s a camp he sold last year as a rent to own lease and there’s still money owed on THAT property too. That’s the only immovables. He had just bought a car with a car note that was brand new and as executor I gave that to my brother with the stipulation he take over payments. I tried to contact a lawyer but the email promptly got returned. I’m 64, inexperienced and at wits end. Any advice would be appreciated.
