Rosalind, I am re-reading your post and I am not sure where your Mom is currently living? You mentioned your sister was your parent's caregiver and I assume that was when your parents lived in Florida.... but I am also reading that you brought your Mom to Ohio and your Mom lived with your sister in Ohio. Is this a different sister or the same sister?

You mentioned "she lives in Miami"... who lives in Miami? Your sister who has the rings and his contesting the Will, or did your Mom return to Florida?

My heart goes out to you! I do not know why but in the end stages when those of us who are trying to take care of our loved ones, there is always someone in the family showing up to start something. Stay strong, get the lawyer help, get it on paper, and in the mean time, take care of yourself. God Bless You

The best way to find an Elder Law attorney is to go to https://www.agingcare.com/Elder-Law and type in your Mom's zip code, and hopefully there will be a variety of Elder Law attorneys to choose from.

Sorry we can't recommend any one person as this website goes worldwide, so unless someone who post here is from Miami and can give you a name, this is the best we can do for you at the moment.

Rosalind, my heartfelt sympathy to you and your family for the passing of your Dad.

Why on earth would your sister contest the Will? In just about all the cases, the husband leaves everything to his wife, and vise versa.

Since that Will probably was written as per Florida State law, your Mom might need to have her Will updated to Ohio State law. And, of course, she would name her children as to be the heirs of her estate. I bet the current Will says that if she should pass, and if her husband had predeceased her, then the estate goes to the children.

Did the sister take Mom's wedding ring for safe keeping while she was in the hospital? That is common. But once the parent returns home, so does the jewelry she was wearing at the time. Maybe in time your sister will return the ring.
