Hello, my name is Peter and I’ll do my best to assist you today.
Please bear in mind as this is an email service and not live chat I may not respond immediately.
If she has been left a sum of money in the will, this money is hers to do with as she wishes. Unless the will states that she is holding this (or some of this) on trust for the son, he would have no legal or beneficial interest in the money. Therefore he has no say in how she spends it.
The only other possible issue would be if he was challenging the will and seeking provision for himself (if not provided for). But if the will has already been through probate this is not likely to be the case.
Can I clarify anything?
If you have further questions, you can always come back to me.
