Lawyers of the OT help please. Who determines if a person is of sound body and mind?

Is it a doctor that can declare for a will or is it someone else? Finding out that some shady shite was done.

My grandmother passed and had dementia and I suspect she was coaxed into changing her will. My father has passed and I feel like I was disowned.

If contested, a court decides based upon testimony from mental health professionals.

You really need to consult with one in person for this type of thing

I’m sure her creepy porcelain doll collection and Tupperware inventory will make it into the correct hands. Sorry for your loss.

thats not an easy fix at this point. you would need to somehow prove they absolutely didnt want to disown you, like in writing or verified by a witness hearing them specifically saying it, and you have to show they were taken advantage of, or manipulated into disowning you.

it goes down a long hard road, to try and prove a negative, but if you fight long enough, they may settle with you.

at this point, with both of them dead and now you are trying to dispute it, you are trying to put the horse back into the barn, after the barn has already burned down. you dont need advice from here, you need a very good inheritance law lawyer and see where you stand if you even have any hopes this far down the road

A judge based upon the medical evidence.

Do you have statements from doctors? We had to have a letter from a geriatric psychiatrist to do a legal conservatorship for my grandfather.

What state are you in? If in Texas, I know a great lawyer for you.

My grandmother was diagnosed with dementia, by a doctor. I am in the process of finding out if it was before the will was changed. I couldn’t care less about the money, I can live with not receiving a penny. It’s the hurt of thinking that after all of the Christmas get together, birthdays and other family gatherings, that meant nothing. The thought of thinking someone loved you to being in the will to being taken out for no reason is like a dagger to the heart.

Hire a good estate attorney, now. You have a very steep uphill climb ahead of you, and it only gets steeper the more time you let pass.

There are neurocognitive tests that can be administered.

A doctor can examine the patient and write an opinion.

Like I said, I’m not interested in the money. The one thing I am concerned about is that in my mind, I feel like I was disowned. It hurts and I just want the peace of mind to know that it wasn’t what was intended. The person that benefits from the money, will then have the burden of knowing what was done was not right and they will have that on their conscience. Once the money is spent, they won’t have anyone to turn to but themselves and realize that without family, there is nothing. The only family that is left is me and my siblings.
