The executor of the will was he neighbor, in Mexico, who is also, Canadian. the two senior pesns in our family, on Mom's side, is my brother Gary, and Myself. I am 10 months younger than Gary. My daugher, Sara, my son, Cameron, Gary, and myself went to Mexico, in October 2016, to fullfill Moms last wish, which was done on October 13, 2016. The trip was paid by all of our own monies, I wasn't even thinking of the will. However, prior to going to Mexico, I was informed by my daughter, that Gay, was given their home(furnished), in Lake Chapala, Mexico and appr., 3 years ago, he got $30000.
JA: Family law
varies by state. What state are you in?
Customer: the will was delivered to me, via registered mail, approx.1 week after returning from Mexico on the 15th of 2016, sent by the executor, here in Edmonton. It states, any gifts given prior to Mom's death are not to be a part of the will. My son also, received $10,000, appox., a year ago but my daughter, who has three children was NOT given, any monies, although, my son told his sister, My Mother was going to leave her the equivalent. However, she was given shadowboxes and my grandmothers and some of my mothers jewelery. I received nothing, as I am on methadone and disability. When I opened the will, I felt like a complete nothing to my mother. My brother is receiving approx $175,000, on top of the house in Mexico and the $30,000 he had already been given. She had just over 200,000. He Is To Receive 75% of all monies. I am to receive 5% approx. $10,000. there was no explanation and i dont understand, her reasoning. Especially, being hew has 1 adult child, and I have 2 and three grandchildren. I am widowed and have been since 1993. My brother just moved to Kamloops, B.C. from Edson, AB, to be with his girlfriend. I want to know, if I can contest t the will
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
