My MIL is terminally ill and on hospice. She had a living trust created (her wishes, the lawyer came she told him what she wanted, papers were drawn up and she signed them). She owns a home with her live-in boyfriend (I call him her partner) of 25 years. The house is paid off and per her wishes, her partner can live in the house for the rest of his life & cannot bring in any non-blood relatives. When he dies, the house goes to her 3 kids & his 2 kids who will sell it and split the money 5 ways. It recently occurred to me that this arrangement isn't exactly fair to him especially considering that he alone paid over $70 into the house over the last few years to get it paid off sooner. I'm not actually worried about anything right now but my curiosity peaked the other day when he made some comments the other day about being angry over the way she treats him, her being angry at him and that she didn't want to leave him anything when she dies because she's angry at him. He said he is angry because he has to stay in the house and pay for all the upkeep meanwhile his 2 kids are going to make money off the house when they never paid a dime towards it! And he has a point. And I knew he wasn't happy when she said she wanted the house to go to the kids but he evidently chose not to fight her on it. I'm just wondering, when she passes, can he go to court to fight the trust & get the house? or make the trust pay him 50%? I am 90% sure that the deed to the house has been changed over and is now in the trusts name. I'm just wondering if he has a leg to stand on here? He also said he is considering a proposal to the 5 kids after she passes, that they sell the house & each kid gives him $10k from their share of the proceeds and he leaves the house and walks away from everyone for good. Supposing not all 5 agree, I wonder if he would take the trust to court and have a leg to stand on? Or is all a done deal since a trust was created?
