What makes you think Grandpa is dying? Sure he is sad about his wife and you should send him a card with a little note telling him how much you love him. As for the stuff in the house, you have no legal rights. If you have asked about having some of her belongings, well, they may suspect you will take something from the house. As for the estate, yes it would have been rearranged when Grandma went in the nursing home; again you have no legal rights there. The best you can do is ask for supervised visitation, in writing, and agree not to ask about belongings or estate items, just spend an hour, no more, with Grandpa.

It certainly sounds like a confusing and dysfunctional situation. I'm sorry for the loss of your grandmother. If you are concerned with the handling of her assets, I might consult with an attorney who handles Probate. You can check and see if an Estate has been opened for her. If he had no assets, it may not be required. In some states, you may have legal standing to open the estate. If there was a Will, it should designate the Executor. An attorney could help guide you on this.

Has your biological father given you a reason that you cannot see your grandfather? You say that he has dementia. He may not recognize anyone anymore. Do you know of any other people who do visit your grandfather? If you have valid reasons to doubt that he is receiving proper care, there are people you can call to investigate. I'd make sure first, though, since making an unfounded claim would likely cause more issues in the family.

Your bio dad and his sister won't let you see dying grandpa?

There are probably reasons. They must have POA and the responsibility to make decisions on what they feel is best for grandpa.

My stepdad passed a month ago. He did not want me to come see him. My son and wife just had a baby. They did not want visitors for a period of time. And you know I am the same way, when I don't feel good I do not want to be bothered with people visiting either.

Maybe that is what grandpa wants. Respect his wishes.

It's not the spelling that's the problem. Your question is all but incomprehensible because you're running on nineteen to the dozen - how do you expect people to follow what you're saying?

Ok. Your grandparents separated. Your grandfather remarried. Doesn't really matter when.

Your biological father has a wife and children with whom you have no connection. These people are hostile to you. It is not clear how or why any relationship with your biological father has been maintained. Normally this would be a good thing; but was it, in fact, for you? I'm not sure how much good it can have done you to have contact with a man who pretended to give you parental time then palmed you off on his father and stepmother. However...

I'm so sorry to hear of your grandfather's loss of his much loved wife. Three days ago. That means his emotions will be totally raw. Do not make things worse. Leave him alone, at least for now. Send a simple card at most, saying only that you are sad about grandma and will miss her very much.

Further down the line, and I mean not this year, the approach to take is that your grandfather has a right to contact with any family he wants to see. If, in the midst of your extremely complex family, you have been brought into contact with any counsellors or social workers, why not ask their advice on how you can advocate your grandfather's right to see you.

Other than that... Your family, like many others, is a bit of an emotional tornado. Try not to get caught up in it. Love who you love, leave those you don't love, make your own life. I hope you get to catch up with your grandpa again, but your chances of that will be better if you approach the situation constructively. Best of luck.
