From our “Ask a Question” Mailbag: Pushing Along the New Jersey Estate Personal Representative

Most Recently Updated July 26, 2018.

“My Mom’s will says that all estate money is divided equally between her children. The Personal Representative said she would be writing us equal checks. It has been 9 months and I have not received a check. How do I get her to hold up her end of the will terms?”

Pushing Along the New Jersey Estate Personal Representative

New Jersey gives the Personal Representative a great deal of unsupervised power to handle the estate. If you feel that this power is being abused, you have the right to force her to appear in court and explain herself. You can hire an attorney experienced in Surrogate’s Court litigation who can file for you a Petition forcing the Personal Representative to file a Schedule of Distribution, which is her road-map plan of how she will distribute the estate’s assets.

If she is not distributing assets equally, you have the right to object and have the judge defend your rights. You have to stand up for yourself in this matter, the court will not come to you.

I have lived in various cities throughout the nation, I have never had a problem in contacting Peter or a member of his team. He and his office responds quickly and returns calls to me to fulfill my requests for information or to revise my estate needs while posing relevant thought-provoking questions that I need to consider to secure my future.
