Grandma passed away last week. I am one of her grandkids who lived with her and took care of her along with my mom throughout the course of her old age and death. My grandmother made my mom power of attorney and also left the house in my mom's name. My grandmother always told me that she had put 10K in an account for each of us grandkids starting 1988. There are 3 of us. However, my mother claims there is no need to read the will in front of anyone or with a lawyer because there is not much money left. My mom claims she knows nothing about the account my grandmother set up for us grandkids. I know there will be some medical bills and whatnot to be paid but I do know there is 74K that was put into a cd. I know the bills will not exceed 74k and the house is completely paid for. My question is, I know my grandmother did not leave me out with nothing. How do I find out if there is indeed an account for us? or my mom refuses to let me see the will? can my mom end up just keeping the money if there was any for us? If there was something left in the will for me how can I claim it? Is there a way even if something was left for us she can turn around and just refuse to give us anything? can I contact the lawyer who has the original will 2 see if anything was left for me? I know my mom found the will when we were cleaning out the closets is this the original or does a lawyer have a copy? see Iím not sure if that was the only copy or if you have to file a copy with a lawyer or courts so any help with all of this is greatly appreciated. I reside in Cuyahoga county in Ohio as well as my grandmother and the rest of us.
