A Michigan judge is going to allow a handwriting expert to examine wills discovered in couch cushions after Aretha Franklin‘s death. Oakland (MI) County Probate Judge Jennifer Callaghan also placed administration of Aretha’s estate under court supervision. That means the court will have a role in major decisions about her estate, including the sale of property.

A handwritten 2014 alleged will shows Aretha wanted her son, Kecalf Franklin, to serve as the representative of her estate. Erich Speckin was hired by Aretha’s son to verify her handwriting Specken told a judge it will take him about three hours to analyze the documents. Lawyers for Franklin’s estate have said “there is no basis” to believe Kecalf Franklin has the skills to administer the estate.

After Aretha died last August her heirs agreed to put the estate in the hands of her niece, Sabrina Owens, who is a university administrator.
