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.

It felt like it, we where all treated very rudely by my aunt so when we walked outside and the fight started I didn't feel that it was wrong to ask anymore exp when she said she would talk to us any longer once she left.


Quoting Anonymous:


I think the whole family is tacky.  Sounds like the funeral was an episode of Springer.


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?

I hate hearing about families like this!!

This sounds like my family.... My grandmother has been sick for a year now, and there has been several times that we didn't think she was going to make it, and thankfully she is doing better today than she was last year. As soon as the possibility of death came up, my family was already at each others' throats trying to divide the money and sell her house. Disgusting.

Quoting Litlmama87:

How long has she been in the ground before you started talking about her finances???

Damn

At the funeral???

That's so fucking ridiculous

Idk, but when my grandpa passed he left me and my sister some money. It wasn't much and I was only 10, but I know my uncle spent it and nothing was ever done about it.

She told us when I was 11 and she didn't start having memory problems tell I was almost 16


Quoting FooLynRoo:

A friend who cannot post for herself said

if her grandmother mentioned to her about the money and she had alzheimers, and was NOT lucid, then there is a possibility that there may not be any money left to her. and a lawyer can't tell her how much money is left in the will over the phone if she isn't power of attorney.

I'm guessing you're in your 20's? so over 10 years ago a woman suffering from alzheimers told you that you would have money - and now you're sniffing around before her corpse is cold for it?

Do i have this right?

Was your grandmother a heiress? How did you aunt have access to the money if your brother had POA?

My in-laws aren't even ill, yet my bil is already sucking up because he wants their house. His exact words..."they won't be around forever and someone needs to get it." Disgusting, but little does he know that my mil knows exactly what he's doing and he won't be getting anything.

I would think that if the money was spent before your grandmothers death that there is nothing you can do. The money was left to you is only IF there is any money to leave. 

You all sound like a class act.
