My Mother passed away on Easter Sunday (4/16/17) She had Alzheimer's and then 8 weeks ago she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
My dilemma is this... on April 4 my sister and I were meeting with a funeral director to make arrangements for her passing. At this meeting my sister let it slip that Mom had a new will. After our meeting I asked her what this was all about. She said with this smirk that Mom had changed her will from a 50/50 between my sister and I ....to give 100% to my sister. This was done more than a year after she had been diagnosed with the Alzheimer's. At the same time my sister and her husband were named POA (power of attorney).
I know that these two legal documents were signed after mom was capable of understanding what she was doing... her cognitive function was severely impaired at that time.
Since moms passing my sister has treated me absolutely awful and has been totally cruel in many ways.
She has changed locks on moms house and has pillaged through moms home throwing things away and taking what she desires. Mom had a beautiful home with many beautiful and expensive collections. Mom was well enough off that her estate will have to go to probate court.... very expensive to hire an attorney to keep my sister and her husband from taking my inheritance. My sister has mentioned that she is going to retire on the portion of Moms estate that should rightfully be mine. My Mother was the kindest sweetest and fair and honest. Her original will was set up so that we were to split equally. She would never have done this to create animosity between her daughters that she loved differently but equally!
I need help with funding as my savings has been depleted cause I quit my job to take care of Mom. I didn't qualify for FML
Anything that you could help me with is
GREATLY APPRECIATED !!
