My father remove me as as POA and later changed his will and POA after he was already determined unable to make his own decisions by a written statement by his doctor. My father's lawyer determined he know him longer then the doctor and determined him competent to make his own decisions. This lawyer who represented by father and also his caregivers who are all convicted felons have have claimed to be his heirs on a will that they had changed. This lawyer has represented all of them on several charges. There was already pending litigation agreed to by both parties to have the state guardianship program to step in and assume medical & financial responsibility. My father was in a wheelchair & had dementia, cirrhosis , died from a massive stroke having had one per medical records under their care. He was only in their care for 5 months prior to his death & they wrote several thousand dollars of checks, suspicious of forgery per his bank. I obtained legal emergency guardianship/conservatorship only 5 days before his death. Bank statements showed severe financial abuse of 89 yr old man.
You need to hire an attorney who handles wills and/or probate as soon as possible to contest this. Use the "Find a lawyer" option at the top of your screen to begin your search.
Dear Madam or Sir:
Assuming your version is true and can be proven, your own lawyer should be able to bring an action to contest the Will and raise all these points before a Judge.
The foregoing is based on the little information provided; additional facts may change the comments given.
This sounds awful. You need to hire a probate litigation lawyer to investigate these facts, and recommend what claims should be pursued in court. If these facts are provable, you could have substantial remedies under several legal theories. Local counsel with whom you consult can provide more precise feedback on these legal issues. Use Avvo's "Find a Lawyer" feature if needed. Best wishes in getting to the bottom of this.
