Mother clearly states me as Executor and Trustee. Help!
My brother and his wife and my father put themselves in TOTAL control of family Estate, so they can cut me out and not treat us fairly. Mom passed away 6 weeks ago and dad is fighting me over her new will. I was Executor of will before 2010, then they tricked mother into signing a new one putting them in control. It's a mess. She secretly rewrote her will by a legal atty, and even video taped her testimony in fear this would happen. I sure hate seeing all the hard earned Money go to lawyers for stupid reasons. But it looks like I have no other choice. I already gave my atty $1000 to file her latest will. Still not done after 2 meetings with dads atty's. Let's face it. He has deeper pockets than I do. He's cashed in her two life insurance policies and paid his lawyer a huge retainer. I'm running on empty. Any suggestions. Should I just let the old Will stand and Not be my dead mothers voice? My mother was not one to fight; but always knew how to win. I'm doubting my abilities to be as strong as she thought I was. HELP ME GOD
