My mother passed away 2 weeks ago. My father lives with me. My father in his 94 year old crazy brain has over the last 3 years developed an unjustified hate for my brother. None of my family can understand this. He has made an appt with an atty to change his will. He rambles on and on and on about all the horrible things my brother has said to him. I can't change his mind. I have tried and tried in many ways - he is crazy.
My brother is socially awkward, an introvert and uses sarcasm to interact with people - it is funny and sometimes hurtful. BUT he is not doing what my father claims. He is not mean or hateful to Dad.
All I can think to do, to keep the peace in my home, is let him change the will. Give me the money and then I will give my brother 50% to keep a promise to my mother and treat my brother fairly.
Does this make sense? Is it legal? what about taxes?
