There’s a wry saying, “Where there’s a will, there’s disgruntled relatives.” But in many cases, that is very true.
You could find yourself in a situation where you are at sword’s point with your siblings over your deceased parent’s estate. This is particularly untenable because these incidents can cause generational rifts in the fabric of a family.
Perhaps your parents helped your younger sister out substantially during their lifetime. They were there for her after her marriage failed and helped her purchase a home. When that home was in danger of being lost to a foreclosure and bankruptcy, they again bailed her out.
To you, and perhaps to your parents as well, it’s very apparent that they have been bailing your sister out all of her life. So that is likely why, except for a token behest, they left the bulk of their estates to you.
Now, she has mounted a legal challenge to their will and you dread facing off against her in this legal dispute.
