I am sorry to hear all of this.

Has your mother died?

How could your brother change her Will?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
she has..she died 3 years ago. I am not sure. Perhaps he contested it? I know he changed it because the original Will was different and was made in 1996. This one has her signature from when she was well. She had Parkinson's and her signature was very different. Also, when I was going through my divorce, the Will that I got from her Safety Deposit Box was different. It said that I would get one house, the house that I looked after my mom in plus half of the house my brother grew up in and he would get the pother house. The reason fro this is because he earns a lot more money than I do and my mom wanted my to be financially secure since I received nothing from my divorce,
