Here's a situation:
Father is 65 with advanced Cerebral Palsy, seizure disorder, high blood pressure and prostate cancer.
Father has significant wealth: $575,000 home in Canada, $700,000 in gold kept in the US and $1.3 million in .stocks
Father's mother and brother live in California and are completely volatile towards any of Father's immediate family. Father's Brother is a doctor and is therefore highly respected in the community. Everybody believes everything Brother says. Mother is 85 yrs old and in better health now than she was at the age of 20. She has an undiagnosed mental illness and is a major source of the volatility. She sues everybody for any reason - including her daughter. Brother follows and does whatever Mother thinks, says and feels.
Mother and Brother are multi-millionaires.
Father's immediate family is made up of 3 daughters, all in their 30's. These girls are riddled with critical illnesses.
Home to go in equal shares to 3 daughters.
The remainder of wealth is to go to Mother and Brother in equal shares.
Father goes to California to see Mother and Brother at Mother's request and by Mother's money. Mother and Brother convince Father that he should sell his home in Canada and put it up for sale for him. It is sold for $399,000 ($176,000 below assessed value). There is suddenly *nothing* available in the Will for the immediate family and the money from the house goes to Mother and Brother to total a sum of 100% of his wealth. Father thinks his Mother and Brother will 'do the right thing' while it is well known that this will not happen.
Is there any possible way of bringing this situation to a better and more fair ending?
