What can I do about my sister who is the executrix of my parents will. She will not release the monies in the estate because she is demanding somethings I have from their house which was split equally?

All Wills have to go to "Probate." This means forms have to be filled out and usually done by a lawyer. A Probate goes over what is in the Estate such as contents, properties, monies, investments. Then all creditors must be paid off and that includes personal income tax and any taxes on homes or properties. As Executrix your sister has to follow the rules and cannot just walk in and take what she likes. By law she has to abide by the wishes of that Will. So, if you are left certain things such as a home, a piece of property or items from that property then she has to comply. Often the elderly (such as mothers) will start giving away china, jewelry, etc., to her daughters or perhaps something to her sons long before she dies. This is legal and your sister doesn't have a leg to stand on. Get a copy of that Will and you can ask the lawyer who is in charge of the Will to send you a copy (it will cost you, but it's not too bad)and say for instant if your mother gave you a ring before her death, and in the Will she leaves it to your sister, then you have to give that ring up if your sister wants it. If your mother gave you the ring and it's not mentioned in the Will, that ring or any other contents she gave you that are not mentioned in the Will is yours! If your sister is being stubborn or greedy then I suggest you get your own lawyer and "Contest the Will." A Will can divide a family quickly. It's sad, but true. Your sister will not want you to Contest the Will because it can tie that Will up in court for 3 years or more. You cannot contest the will because your sister is acting this way, because her actions have no bearing on the validity of the will. You can take her to probate court to compel a proper distribution or have her removed as executrix (if she is in the wrong) or at least have the court decide how this impasse is to be resolved. A probate court might order a different distribution of those "somethings". In any event, such litigation does waste money and leaves scars.

0 because they do not fit in equally, but if you don't want the equally then 3.

One is a prime factor of 210 because it goes into 210 equally. Two is a prime factor of 210 because no other number can go into it other then one and itself, and because it goes into 210 equally. Three is a prime factor of 210 because it goes into 210 equally, and because no other number can go into the number three equally, other then 3 and itself. Five is a prime factor of 210 because it divides into 210 equally, and because no other number can go into the number five equally, other then 5 and itself. Seven is a prime factor of 210 because it divides into 210 equally, and because no other number can go into the number seven equally, other then seven and itself.\ Hope this helped!

Yes, Antigone is stubborn. She's adamant, demanding, inflexible, and uncompromising in her convictions. She's as passionate in the talk as in the walk. The problem is that the way in which she packages her opinions is equally adamant, demanding, inflexible, and uncompromising. Her stubborn insistence upon the rightness of her stance brooks no discussion that could lead to compromise or negotiation.

No, every part of the cell is not stained equally. That is because, if you stain every part of the cell equally then you can't tell the difference in the parts of the cell.

It's either Aries or Leo. Both signs are equally bossy and stubborn. But Aries is quite more pushy and forceful. So I guess it could be Aries.

We try to treat people equally because God loves each man equally so passionately He came down to Earth and died for our sins as a sinless human taking on all our sin. So we treat people equally because God said to in the Bible and God loves each human equally and we are all made in His image

People should be treated equally every day 24/7 because the earth made people the way they are for a reason and you should not judge them when they treat you equally.

Bring a lawsuit against the cousin, forcing the cousin to show what was done. Perhaps your cousin did not share money equally because the will or living trust did not require him/her to divide money equally.
