Your father should consult with a local estate lawyer who can help him draft a Will that will ensure that his new spouse is taken care of during her lifetime but the estate then goes to you.

What can be done, just by way of example, is that your father can give his new spouse a life interest in the house which means she lives there until her death or until she wants to move out but the house is never owned by her, rather it goes to you and your sibling.

Does that clarify what needs to be done?
