My name is***** and I will be helping you with your question today. This is for informational purposes only and does not establish an attorney client relationship.
At this point if the death occurred in 1997, the statute of limitations and the ability to do anything about this has passed. A spouse cannot disinherit another spouse anyway as the spouse can receive and should receive a share of the other spouse's estate. A verbal declaration of intentions is not binding in anyway. The last will and testimate must be written and recorded along with other various requirements. If some fraud or something else is involved then evidence of the intentions of the decedent can be taken into evidence but this is far from binding.at this point I don't think there is any recourse at all.
