Sister positioned herself in such a way as to have all access to mother's estate.Mother(was dying from cancer), sister made sure everything went to herself - Help! Sister is an alcoholic and a VERY manipulative person. Greedy, always. Dad passed away, sister immediately got her name on all Mom's accounts. Lived off of parents one way or another all her life, never having to pay a mortgage-lived in Mom & Dads houses mortgage free. Need advice on how to contest will or her being an Executor!

Your greedy parasitic sister sounds an awful lot like mine, unfortunately for you, mjb123. I knew years ago that my parents were my sister's "retirement plan", so I wasn't surprised when she took control of our mom after our dad died. You can probably get a lawyer to pursue contesting the new Will due to undue influence on your sister's part. Do you have a copy of the original Will prior to the one your sister had changed? What did it list as beneficiaries, or were you kept out of that too? Given the time frame of the changed Will close to the date of your mom's death, and that your sister became sole beneficiary, I would think you have a valid case in court. Is there enough money and assets, say over $300k, to make it worth your while? Because a legal battle will be expensive and have to be paid for whether you win or lose. Usually the lawyers make out the best in these situations. It would be worth a consultation with a lawyer to find out if you have a solid case. So find the best estate attorney you can, talk to him and if he feels it's a worthy case, go for it. Other than that, you really have only one option: to realize you have been "had" by your rotten sister and never have anything to do with her again.

You still don't have any proof of your allegation that she forced your mother to change her will. W/o proof you won't get very far with the authorities.

Not sure you can do anything. An attorney would say that the rest of the family had time to remove Mom from that environment and make changes regarding that sibling since everyone already knew she had a history of dysfunction and greed.

Sister would not allow other family in the house w/mother after father died. Everyone tried to be apart of care - she would not let anyone help (on purpose). When we did flat out showed up she hovered so that we could not talk frankly & ho9nestly with Mom. Proof is very hard, but this woman has a history of dysfunction & greed.

What proof do you have? That's a major element to any will contest.
