Best Answer

The deceased passed away 2 years ago in Missouri. The grandson that had the power of attorney has not filed the will as of yet that we know of. The other two grandchildren are wanting to get it settled as their grandparents house was supposed to go to the youngest grandchild. This has not happened yet. Please help.

Depending on the state in which the decedant resided in , but normally if they had a Will it is 10 days after death. If they had a trust it is 30 days.
