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.


nah, bro. It’s about the money.

Nothing a court can do will rectify that mamby pampy shite you cite about memories and Christmas.

It’s ok to tell us it’s about the money.

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.


The medical records stating dementia and some therapy can give you that. You don’t need a lawyer.

*shrugs*

Then you simply need to make peace with what has occurred, because it sounds like you don't want to take the necessary steps required to have anyone who matters make a determination that you were not, in fact, disinherited by those people while of sound mind.

You don’t know me. My aunt tried to give me money. I turned it down. Simply because money can’t cure heartache. Trust me, many on here know you are an a-hole.

If it's not about the money, then it would be really stupid to try and challenge the will. That would cost you money, and all you would get out of it is money.

Also, when someone says "it's not about the money," it is almost always actually about the money.

The coroner can do it but I don't know how you get to that point.

I’m not contesting the will. Have already been offered money from my aunt and turned it down. It’s the idea of being forgotten that’s upsetting. Have In the will that you love us dearly but I’m giving everything to the daughter. But, don’t forget about the deceased son and his three children. At least mention them that they are loved. We went from getting something to not being a gleam in their eyes, just wish I knew why.

We have these people we call judges. They literally judge whether or not someone is of sound mind and body.

How would a lawyer help with any of that?

Wills aren't meant to address who you love. And actually, beneficiaries for retirement accounts in LA can bear the designation of per stirpes or per capita - which dictates if the beneficiary predeceases, who things flow to. Love isn't shown by inheritance - your words indicate that you think it is. My questions would be, when your father died, did you inherit anything? You are your parent's children. Does your aunt have children? If so were they included in the will? Did you spend time with her for the purpose of her showing her gratitude via her will? Or was your love for her intangible and vice versa? When was her will last updated? Did she ever indicate you would inherit anything? Someone leaving everything to their sole surviving child isn't a case for elder abuse or someone being manipulated.

Your initial post indicates you shared special times and holidays with your grandmother during her lifetime. If you felt she loved you, then she did and her will doesn't change that. You know whether she loved you and if the money doesn't matter, then leave it alone. If she decided to leave everything to her surviving daughter, so be it. That doesn't mean she didn't love you or your siblings or that she disowned you. Wills do not typically contain love letters to surviving relatives.

If you believe she was coerced, then you will have to speak with an attorney and move forth with litigation which will be costly and possibly unsuccessful. If you have a relationship with your aunt, litigation will certainly harm that.

So your aunt who offered you some money is the only beneficiary? You think she was the one who pressured your grandmother to change the Will? Did she offer you a lot less than what your dad would have presumably inherited had he survived?
If you say you don't need the money, maybe your grandmother thought your aunt needed it more and you would be ok on your own.
I'm sorry to see this, I have a grandmother who means the world to me, and my dad passed away 16 years ago, so I'm sensitive to your situation
