Hi there, My mother was terminally ill a few months back. She had appointed a friend of hers as power of attorney to help plan any of her funeral services with the help of us (her children). This friend was also appointed joint executor, with one of my aunties, of the will to which everything was left equally to us 3 children. When mum was coherent, she had taken out her superannuation money and had it in an account which this 'friend' had access to. We have since found out that this 'friend' executor had helped herself to some of mum's money while mum was still alive, we have no receipts nor have we been shown what the money was spent on. This executor has hired a n estate planning lawyer to do the probate and I have asked the lawyer if he can help me to find out how much super mum had withdrawn to see how much the friend had helped herself to but the lawyer has said he works for the 'friend' executor so I would need to get my own lawyer if we wanted this info. Is there anyway of finding out how much superannuation mum had prior to this lady taking some? Us kids just want this friend to be held accountable for her actions. This was not her money to help herself to. Nor had/has she included the other joint executor of a will into any of the spendings which I would have thought was also illegal. Just want to know what options we have, and if its worth fighting?
