Regarding a will

My brother is the executor of my late father’s Will. My brother wants me to send him a signed document with my signature on it to him, via email with a copy of my license, SSN, address and phone number to give to the attorney. I am reluctant because I don’t trust him. Should I do it?

I am so sorry for your loss.  The documentation may be needed to transfer assets but if you do not trust him, ask for the lawyer to send you a letter as to exactly what is needed and why.  You should also have a copy of the Will and you might consider hiring an attorney of your own to monitor the situation with you. The estate attorney only answers to the Executor and the Court.  Good luck.
