My dad has today gone to the solicitor to sort out his Will. He has dementia. He said before he went that in the case of me dying before him, then my share would be split between my DS and charities, not my daughter. I was happy with this as my DS helps him out when he needs it and is concerned for his welfare. My daughter isn't, wouldn't contact him or even know where he is living.
The charities were Tommy's and the PDSA. Tommy's because my dad lost a son after only 12 hours and they had two miscarriages, and they do research into stillbirth and miscarriage and the PDSA because of the pets he has had over his lifetime which have meant so much to him.
He got to the solicitor and told them that he didn't know then who Tommy's was (even though he had told me about it only an hour before) and the PDSA. (Short term memory loss). So he decided then that it should be split equally between my son and my daughter. I am upset as I know that her getting money from someone she does not give two hoots for is wrong, in my opinion. Why should she benefit just because she is tied by blood when she does not care and wouldn't spit on him if he was on fire?
I now have to make sure that I outlive my dad so that she doesn't get a penny. She is only marrying her boyfriend this year because his dad has died and left £30,000 and she can use it to fund the wedding. She said before that that marrying wasn't her thing. No, not til she saw pound signs from someone else she didn't give two hoots about. His dad didn't like her one bit but she is happily spending his money and not giving a jot about it. His dad even had to pay his own son to go and look after him.
AIBU in not wanting her to benefit from the Will of an old man who she had never had the time of day for?
