Additionally, the other party made a change to the document, in the left margin. The change was NOT initialed by the other party. There is enough handwriting, in fine black ink, that a layperson would could come to the conclusion that it WAS the signatory who made the change. Is this considered a legal document? Would the court use the date of the Notary, as the date the Agreement was signed?

These actions involve drafting documents and attending conferences for which the party I'm in litigation against did not show up for. I am willing to pay other parts of the billings not pertaining to these other actions. I'm in one state, and the lawyer and my case are in another. So, what happens if I only pay part of the bill?

I am seeking input from people / lawyers who have gone through a similar situation: how likely is the Court to remove her as Executrix, and appoint me as Executor, if I bring a motion? 1) She is to sell my Mom's house, when she no longer lives there. She hasn't lived there since 5/2016. House is still not for sale. 2) She acknowledging in writing that she rented out the house from September thru November 3) for $2,000. She has not distributed the proceeds to myself or my brother. 4) She acknowledging in writing that she totaled my mom's car and received $3,000 from the insurance company in 2015. She has not distributed the proceeds to myself or my brother. She also blew off two conferences set up by the Court, to come to an Agreement with me regarding the sale of my Mom's house. I ended up drafting one on my own, which was provided to her.

Instead, she has rented it out to at least two different parties, and has not shared the income with me (or our other brother, to my knowledge). After involving a Probate Court Lawyer, she has made repeated lies. 1) She's only been out of the house for six weeks. 2) She has rented the house to a friend, and only charged them reimbursement of the house's utility costs. Additionally - as Executrix, she is required to pay taxes on the property, maintain homeowner's insurance, etc. As of late November, the School Taxes due by August 31st still have not been paid. When she was served with the Notice to Appear in court, her son called and left me a voice-mail message, that "the next time I see you, I'm going to fck you up!" My brother texted me recently, and asked if I was coming home for Christmas. Per him, my sister ("we all") wants you to come home. So - how should I respond to this? 1.

    My sister is Executrix of my Mom's Will. The Will stated that my sister could use my Mom's house as her Primary Residence, as long as she maintained it, paid the taxes, etc. It also stipulated that if she no longer used it as her Primary Residence, the house is to be sold "in an expeditious manner." My sister has not resided there since May 8th. She moved in with her boyfriend. Dressers are moved, closets are bare, and her mattress is no longer there. However, most other belongings ARE there - DR table, nephew's futon and desk, washer and dryer, extensive basement storage. (She is basically using it as free storage...) She now plans on renting out the house, and my brother is in agreement with this. *I* think the Will should be executed "as is," and the house be sold. I have contacted both siblings multiple times by text and e-mail, and they refuse to discuss the house with me. 1) Is seven weeks of vacancy enough time for the Court to Act / that she is not acting in an expeditious manner? 2) If I become Executor - I am assuming that *I* will then need to pay the utilities, taxes, etc. until the house is sold. 3) If I take out a home equity loan to fix up the house for sale, pay utilities, taxes, etc. - I am assuming I can "net" repayment of the loan AND INTEREST, prior to distributing funds from the sale of the house, right? 4) Similarly, I can seek reimbursement for my legal costs for having her removed as Executrix, for not performing her duties?

I've twice denied her insistence for financial support (taking her kids to get footwear; loaning her $800). She already has not repaid our other brother over $1,800 in expenses. I texted my nephew about what he wanted for his birthday a month beforehand. He never responded to my text, nor acknowledged it. I gave him a gift and a card on his birthday. Granted he had friends with him on his birthday, but he did not acknowledge it over the coming days, nor has he at all. I texted my niece a few weeks ago, about gifts for her birthday. Again - she never acknowledged the text, nor returned it. I was talking with my brother on Easter, and he said that my niece told him that she would send him some gift suggestions later this week. At this point, I will likely buy her gift certificates, which is what I did for my nephew. But, at the end of the get-together with my family, I am considering telling my sister I will no longer get gifts for her children. They are rude and don't return texts They don't acknowledge gifts received. It appears they are adopting their mother's attitude / anger with me, for not financially supporting her (and them). Am I wrong in considering not buying gifts for my niece and nephew any longer? I feel like I'm an outcast, that is being taken for granted - I'm only in their lives when I provide gifts that aren't acknowledged.
