My mother passed away last november, and has left me a few things as a result. Namely a house, and a lock deposit box, with some jewelry. My father, who was not named in the will at all wants both of these items. The house she left me was given to me and only me, as was the deposit box. As far as i know the house was not jointly owned, and owned by just her. As was the safe deposit box.In summary, my dad has already hired a lawyer to look over everything and attempt to contest the will. What legal footing does he have here, and at what point should I hire a lawyer if at all?
