Virginia Estate Claim on business dealings

Recommended Posts

VIRGINIA.  A friend/business partner passed away.  Brother of deceased is executor and presented a very simple and vague will dated from 2009.  Our business dealings were formally  structured in 2007, which i have all paperwork.  Executor admits he  has found the business paperwork,  but now has cut-off all communication to resolve these issues regarding the business interests owed now by the estate that were in the possession of the deceased at the time of his passing. The executor did not file the estate under porbate and did not abide by the clear wishes of the deceased in this simple will. The estate has verifiable assets far exceeding the $50K limit for  a "simple estate".  What steps will I need to take andwhat would be a reasonable attorney fee to pay and attorney to properly resolve this style case?

Presented it to whom?  How long ago did the death occur?  What is it that makes you describe the will as "very simple and vague"?  In what state is this happening?

 

It's worth pointing out that, unless and unless a court appoints him, the deceased's brother is not actually the executor?

What does this mean?

How so?

What steps should you take for what purpose?

What does "this style case" mean?  I legitimately have no idea what you're talking about.

 

You said the deceased was a friend, so, unless his will leaves something to you, you have no legal interest in his estate.

 

You also said he was a business partner, but you provided zero information about the nature of your business relationship.  Without at least some information about that, we have no conceivable way of knowing if or how his death might impact you.

The beginning of the post mentions that it is in Virginia.

 

What type of business is this and what is the nature of the assets that you are owed?

 

Consult an attorney immediately to find out how you should proceed, by filing a claim against the estate or by doing something else.  You may be charged an hourly fee but it will be well worth it after you have recovered what you are aiming to receive.
