Customer: replied 9 months ago.
she controlled my father in all ways , moneys etc , she stopped us going to the family home by changind the locks on the doors and caused nothing but trouble for us ,she did not tells that our father had died , I read about his death in the local paper last july ,until now we have been told nothing , until we got letters tell us we are not benifactors in the will . and he has will my mothers home to her and her husband that has caused all the problems in our family
Expert:  JGM replied 9 months ago.
If your father was influenced into making his wil then you would have the right to contest the will. You also have the right to claim legal rights on part of the estate even if there is a will I suggest you see a solicitor as quickly as you can so as to see what can be done for you.
