Where should that attorney practice if the house is in another state? 6 Answers as of January 25, 2016

My grandmother passed away seven years ago willing her house to her four children with the provision that her youngest son (while living) is the life tenant and trustee. He has obligations that he has failed to deliver on. My mother (1/4 of the house) has passed away recently (the will states that her 1/4 carries down to her children-just me). The house is in another state. Which type of lawyer do I need to contact?

Contact a probate attorney in the State where your mother lived and where the home is located. If there's a will, then you will need to initiate probate proceedings. If there is only a trust, a trust/probate attorney will be able to assist you. An Attorney in your state who is also licensed in the state where the proceedings will take place may also work for you.

    You will need a probate lawyer in her state of residence. If different, that lawyer will have to work with one in the state where the real estate is located.
