My father specifically named a bank account in his Will in 2007 as his separate property and going to his children; however, in 2006 (prior to the Will) his wife was added to the same account with JTWROS. This is totally contradictory to each other. There is another account specifically named in his Will designated to be split equally between stepmother and three children; however, she was added to this account JTWROS 18 months after the Will. Can these JTWROS designations be challenged? And there is another Account Change Card that is not dated. What can we do to have the estate go strictly by his Will in that he had worded it so carefully as to who he wanted to have which accounts?
