How do you get your Stolen Inheritance Back?
Who stole my inheritance? How do you get your stolen inheritance back?
Are you involved in an estate or some type of trust and you are convinced that your inheritance was stolen? What do you do?
There’s three things that you need to do. First of all, you need to file a lawsuit or some type of paper in a probate proceeding, if one is going on, or you need to sue the wrongdoer.
Remember, the law doesn’t help those who sit on their rights and remain silent. The law helps those who get up and voice their rights and take a stand.
The second thing you need to do, is you need to conduct discovery. You need to know where the money went, by what authority it left, and where it is today so that you can get it back.
Finally, you need to try the case. Right? And you want a jury trial, if somebody has committed concealment or fraud, or breach of fiduciary duty.
Remember, if somebody stole your inheritance and they were in a position of trust, or fiduciary responsibility, like a power of attorney, or a trustee, or an executor, or somebody who is in a position of great trust. The law imposes very large duties, big burdens on those legal actors. And when they commit terrible, terrible wrongs you may be able to get punitive damages, maybe triple damages, maybe not.
But you need to know how to exercise your rights. And if you don’t, you’re not going to be able to get around the statute of limitations because your time to exercise your rights, if your inheritance has been stolen, is limited.
