My husband and his brother are to split his father's assets 50/50 per his father's will. His mother died last year and the father took both brothers to the bank and put them as signers on the savings and checking account and POD on the CD's and annuity. My brother-in-law is having an affair and we live out of state. The only reason we know is because his wife called to tell us they will be living separately but acting divorced because the brother doesn't want to tell his father. My concern is this is a small rural town and I want to protect my husband's portion of the inheritance. I'm in real estate and see these issues all the time. My husband does not want to get involved. Can you tell me if it sounds like my husband is protected or is there some other precautions he should take?My mistake. I should have written acting married so the brother will not have to tell his father before he passes. He's 86 and in very poor health.
