His will leaves everything to the children after her death. After her husband, my stepfather, died, we learned that everything went to his children from a prior marriage. Can we do anything about that? What rights do I have? We almost never have enough information to give a definitive answer after the initial consultation, and that is particularly true with these questions. What does it depend on?
How do I find my late father’s will when my stepmother is blocking the way?
How do I find my late father’s will when my stepmother is blocking the way? - MarketWatch
My father remarried at 60 after both of his sons were grown and out of the house. His new wife seemed nice and was great to him. She took great care of him through a cancer fight that he lost after five years. I am eternally grateful to her for that and have said as much to her. Months before his passing, she and I got into a huge fight and some nasty things were said.
Question Details: My father and step-mother have wills. I was told by my father that I was the executor of his Will and he had made provisions for me and my children, along with my step-mother and her children and grandchildren. I was told by my step-mother that because she is his surviving spouse, everything goes to her regardless of what my father's Will says. Is this true?
