My twin brother and I have been told that she has written a new will for my father and signed his name to it. He has a will that he has signed that is leaving items to me and my brother and his other 3 kids with her. She has been telling people that she is not giving us anything, she wants to sale it all. What legal right do I have if any? My father is in the hospital in life support. Would like to know if I have any legal rights on this issue also?
Your step mother can't sign your father's name to a new will. Your father has to sign the will himself, in the presence of two witnesses (who cannot be beneficiaries of the will). What you are going to have to do is talk to a probate attorney and retain him/her to contest the will when it is probated.
I'm licensed to practice law only in Indiana, and we've never met, so I can't give you "legal" advice. My answer is simply "friendly" advice based on my experience as an attorney in Indiana, my knowledge of federal and common law, and common sense. Even if you are in Indiana, employment law questions are very fact specific, and based on the limited information you provided in your post, I can't give you legal advice, and my answer is intended as general information only. It doesn't create an attorney-client relationship.
