I am so sorry for your loss and for the issues that have resulted in the probate of the estate.  I think that you mean that your brothers have been named as co-executors of the estate, correct?  A POA would no longer be in effect once your father passed.  If you believe that they are not acting properly then you should speak with an attorney on your own behalf to help you monitor the matter.  Once filed the will is a public record and you can review the probate file as you wish.  Keep on top of things as there are time limitations.  Good luck.
