Is there any recourse for an estate settlement that was mishandled and resulted in financial abuse to 1 of 2 beneficiaries?

Will was unsigned; CD’s contained one of two beneficiaries signatures, which was treated as joint owners by the court; my older sibling and mother. Older sibling refuses to communicate without retaliation by contacting court and filing harrassment orders that are false.The case was mismanaged.

Based upon what you have written about a potential civil action can be looked into for misappropriation if assets and breach of a fiduciary duty. I suggest that you consult with an attorney that does this type of litigation in your locality. One can be found on attorneypages.com.
