After three months of negotiation, my Dad and I are close to an agreement. I don't want any signs of undue influence so I wonder if I should take out pressure to have him include me in will.
State/Country relating to question: Connecticut
My oldest brother who's the executor of will --- would not sign agreement.
Yes you should, or you might get sued by any other beneficiaries later.
However, you receive the amount you would have if there was no will, you will not be liable for undue influence (in all likelihood).
"if you receive"
Does that make sense?
Do you have any other family (mother, or other siblings).
I had a contract with father earlier.
two brothers older and younger
Then, if you get 1/3 or less, they will be unlikely to prevail in an undue influence claim.
So the agreement we are working on is a family document where all sign.
Then that should be ok.
so, to be clear,
That should be fine.
oh ok great, then I have brothers sign details and we should be all set
thank you, you helped
You are most welcome.
I'm glad to hear it.
Glad to hear it!
do I say "save and exit"?
Please rate me so I get paid
the happy face?
I am responsive, respectful, and relentless.
