I was told by my brother n sister that I would be able to borrow against my parents estate 20,000.00 to buy a trailer and car. This was my dad's wish.
A trailer was bought for 13,563.95 and I was told I'd have to wait for car. I have medical issues and have to travel 45 miles either way to see my Drs so a car is very important.
My brother executer and sister showed up yesterday saying they never said 20,000. and I'm only getting 15,000.
They expected me to sign a promissory dated back in Nov 2020. I've always thought contracts should be signed before the fact not after. The money will be taken from my share of trust so why the note.

A promissory note is based on when the loan is made, not necessarily when the note is signed. So if the siblings actually loaned the money, regardless of when the note is signed, then a backdated note is ok.

Contracts Counsel was incredibly helpful and easy to use. I submitted a project for a lawyer's help within a day I had received over 6 proposals from qualified lawyers. I submitted a bid that works best for my business and we went forward with the project.
I never knew how difficult it was to obtain representation or a lawyer, and ContractsCounsel was EXACTLY the type of service I was hoping for when I was in a pinch. Working with their service was efficient, effective and made me feel in control. Thank you so much and should I ever need attorney services down the road, I'll certainly be a repeat customer.
I got 5 bids within 24h of posting my project. I choose the person who provided the most detailed and relevant intro letter, highlighting their experience relevant to my project. I am very satisfied with the outcome and quality of the two agreements that were produced, they actually far exceed my expectations.
