The Moneyist: My sister wrote $10,000 checks from our late mother’s bank account—what can I do?

Dear Moneyist,

My sister was trustee of our mother’s accounts. When our mom went into the nursing home and was incapacitated, my sister started writing checks in large amounts to her children—$10,000 at a time and, although her name was on the accounts with mom, it was to pay her bills, but my sister never paid them.

At the time of death, she did pay a couple of bills, but never filed taxes or paid her nursing home costs and many other bills. She also closed accounts and transferred money to her personal account claiming nothing was left.
