Barrister: This is the evil sister case. I hope you are

Hi Barrister: This is the evil sister case. I hope you are well. Well, I have finished all the beneficiary forms and the letter to the sister. Just waiting for my older son to notarize his and mail it back to me. I just wanted you to know that sister did send my other younger son some supplement from his inheritance while at school. I do not know why she did when he ignored her request for a budget when he explicitly told her there was "nothing to budget" which truly there wasn't. He has no debt to speak of, and his rent is the same as his sisters and then food. His work is close and so maybe she figured out it was a losing battle and just had a check sent. Now if you're thinking I should give her some credit, no, I can't. What she has done, I just do not see good in her. I think it was guilt. But anyway, guess what? No sooner he got the check, he now has wrecked his car. That is 3 accidents between two kids with two of them being new cars. I have just had it. I am fed up since my mom died. Every day is a battle, there really hasn't been enjoyment in any fashion at all. So I wanted to let you also know if you remember, that my finger from the acupuncturist has 80% healed. It still feels funny, but way too far from suing him. Not worth it. I used to have daily annoyance of it with every use, but it is so much better I don't think about it. Lastly, as soon as I get my older sons beneficiary form (having them notarized to make it more sealed), then I will mail them to her all together with the kids' names as the return address name and using our home address because 3 of the kids our home address is their permanent address. I will not be putting my name on it anywhere other than the fact that the kids all chose me and their dad as contingent beneficiaries after their siblings. I keep looking at the trust and can't find a thing about who their beneficiaries are after death and distribution, so this to me is not rocket science. I am sure this will be an awful Christmas gift for her, but I do not care. I am sending courtesy copies to all the sibs for each other, sister's lawyer, to me and my husband, and the investment manager at the firm. I will keep you updated soon after she gets it and what she says if anything. Can you believe my son had an accident and daughter had two since July? I mean, this is why I worry. I am a realist, not a pessimist. Everyone says I should have been a lawyer, but ethics gets in the way for me. When you respond, I have a question if you don't mind. thanks, ***** *****

My Mother in Law passed away last week. There are 5

My Mother in Law passed away last week. There are 5 siblings, a single property worth an estimated $200,000.00 and debits equal to approximately $40,000.00. For the past 40 years she has always said that upon her passing she wanted the property sold and the proceeds equally dispensed between the five children, after debts have been paid. Two years ago the oldest of the five children moved in with my mother in law after she lost her rental. At the time she moved in my mother in law was 84 years old. Sometime during that two years my sister in law who had moved in had my mother in law sign a will that gave her the house. This was completely against everything my mother in law expressed as her wished for decades, all the other siblings acknowledge this and I have heard it multiple times during the 40 years I have been a member of the family.JA: Estate laws vary by state. What state are you in?Customer: Is there anything that the other four siblings can do in this situation to have any remaining assets divided equally as per their mother's real wishes?JA: I'm the Estate Lawyer's Assistant. I work with them to help customers like you.Customer: NJJA: What documents or supporting evidence do you have?Customer: None, the oldest refuses to share the documents and she has control since she had moved into her house.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: At this point no, we just want to know what they should do.
