my father passed away in june 2017 and my two sisters and my daugjter were beneficiaries in his will. i was left out. i know something clearly went wrong. so my question is does a parent in this case, have to disinherit you you first? and or do i have any recourse at all? afterall he was my father too. he left me a gift of 15,000 dollars and thats it. so in the meantime everyone else is collecting hundreds of thousands of dollars and i am trying to make ends meet every month. i have his dog now whom i love so much. i had asked the executor of my fathers trust if their is anyway i could get a partial reimbursement since the dog got very sick and he said no! i have been struggling through this nightmare ever since tis mess started. my sisters said don't worry we will help you out when we sell dads house. well his house sold. and now i am being told that they cant do it now!! omg. what can i do??? is their any recourse for me at all??? please help. now my father died in Los angels, California. since then i moved to las Vegas, NV. i thought it would be cheaper. what a bad decision i made moving here.
I am sure this is not what you want to hear...... Your father has no obligation to provide for you in his Will or Trust. Per your inquiry it seems that he left you $15,000, he is not under any obligation to leave you any monies. Your other family members may elect to give you some monies, but they are under no obligation. If you want to hire an attorney to look at the file and confirm what I have said, you should seek legal counsel in CA.
