Let your advocates junior shall file application to appoint commission to seek evidence.the commission will attend to spot and takes evidence of you and submit before court.if you are unable to adduce evidence.
Your advocate's physical presence may not be necessary at this stage and his juniors can handle it. If it is not possible for him to attend to proceedings, approach to Legal Services Authority as a Senior citizen and seek legal assistance and their guidance for a compromise on facts. At this age, do not worry assuming things, as courts can not decide a case without going into fundamental aspects recorded in documents. These cases are usual when the defendants are in advanced age, and even siblings adopt such deceptive practice of exploitation. Be brave and do not worry and the court considers all points. Even outside land even without share is sharable and you are entitled for equal share.
