Bother manipulating 90 year old mom to steal everyone's inheritance.
Asked May 16, 2007, 06:46 PM
I am the youngest of eight kids. My parents made up their wills in 1999 after my father discovered he had cancer. He passed on in 2004. Their wills were written to put the home into a special needs trust for my mentally challenged brother so he could live there the rest of his life. My oldest brother agreed to after he would retire to move in and take care of the parents and my brother. For this the will was written giving him 50% of the family home and 1/7th of the cash after the passing of my mother and brother.
His wife moved in from Ohio to Pennsylvania in 2000. My brother retired and moved here in 2002. A year after my father's death, my brother starting complaining to my mother how she should appreciate all they do. Last December he had my 89 year old mother sign the home over to him which broke the Trust it was in for my brother. The rest of the family is very upset over this. Since he lives in a mobile home right behind my mother's he is brian washing her everyday on how much they do and that the rest of the family doesn't care about her. OH, the reason they stay in the trailer is because my sister-in-law is getting $25,000 a year from a State agency for taking care of my challenged brother. If they move into the house they lose the $25,000. He has been turning my mother against all the rest of the family. He is also in charge of the money and will not tell any of us what is in the accounts. He is planning on taking all the money that was to be split between the other brothers and sisters. The worse thing is him turning our mother against the rest of us.
Is there anything we can do?
