Left $24,000 after my grandmas death? Edit with more info!!

Posted by   + Show Post
My grandma recently passed away. She was in an Alzheimer's unit for 5 years prior to her death. Before she started going down hill she told my brother sister cousins and I that she had money for us and it was in her will. My brother is supost to get a larger sum then the rest of us because he was her favorite and the first born great grandson. Well at the funeral I asked my great aunt about the will her and my uncle said there was not a will.



We all became feroius that they would lie about it, I contacted my grandmas lawyer and they do have a will on file for her, I should know every thing Monday.

My aunt was spending my grandmas money before she even died, she bought a new car and did renos to her house with her money, my question is if she spent all the money but there is a will that says my siblings cousin and I are intitled to our money will she have to pay us back?

Also she said for the 5 of us not including my brother there was 120,000 supost to be split which is 24,000 each. That is a lot of money so could she go to prison if she spent it?

Btw my brother is poa but is in prison, also jut so you can see where I am coming from my aunt uncle and grandma sued my great grandma ( the on who just passed) for there fathers money after he passed and she was 80 at the time, it broke her heart.
She wrote them all out of the will after this so I do not think for one second that they wouldn't all jump in and take what is ours that our grandma wanted us to have.

I do know her husband works at a gas station for min wage and they can't afford a brand new car or an addition on to there house


Quoting FooLynRoo:

You dont know what money was or wasn't hers.

You are just assuming on things you honestly don't have a clue about.




Quoting My3beautys:

Yes because she done spent money that wasnt hers so I'm sure she will be spending more now that grandmas gone, and she hit my aunt at the funeral so I don't see it as that tacky the way she behaved was tacky and she told us after she left she would no longer speak to our family anymore





Quoting coleysmama:

Really? You asked at the funeral?

If she had power of attorney then yes she could have spent it and I don't think there is anything you can do.

Well then, I'm sure Grandma would be very proud of how you all honored her memory.

Yikes!

If she had poa not much you can do. And what kind of person are you to ask about a will when our grandmother wasn't even in the ground yet. You're greedy end of story, I personally hope you get nothing.

Quoting My3beautys:

Quoting IandLoveandYou:

Lmao at "supost" and "feroius"... I think those are my two favorite misspellings. Alzheimer's though... I'm impressed. Did you google it for the spelling? lol

Ugh, this totally made me laugh. You have this heartfelt response above. And then....."btw, you tacky whore!!" Lmao

Quoting FooLynRoo:

btw totally tacky to ask about her mothers will at the funeral.. I don't blame her for telling you there isn't one.

If you were legally named, she would have no power over notification.

They were the ones I dreaded the most lol

Quoting ninjakids:

I worked for John Hancock... If she was the poa & was taking care of her expenses etc. legally she can fight and recieve the money, especially if said aunt paid for the funeral. Ive seen it constant times. Also if the money was named in the will but the bene in life insurance was different it goes to the bene regardless of the will.

 This part is correct.

5 days before she passed, I went to her house everyday and helped her after school up until she went to the nursing home. I loved my grandma dearly and she told us that there would be a big fuss about the money and do not let anyone screw us out of it so I'm not going to.


Quoting FooLynRoo:

When was the last time you saw your grandmother?
