My Dad passed away 21 years ago when I was 19 years old. I was always lead to believe that my Dad had a lot of insurance and was big on providing for his family in the event of something going wrong. All of Dad's kids, my sister and myself as well as 3 older kids from Dads first marriage, only received a very small amount of money from his deceased estate. We were very shocked as this was very unexpected. I don't know the state of his financial affairs when he passed but I know he had owned various property, his house and several insurance policies. At the time of his passing he was married to his third wife. She did not have anything of value when they were married. Our understanding is that she received everything that Dad owned, including their house. I never saw a copy of my Dad's will even though I requested it several times. My Dad did not have any children with his last wife. She had one son from a previous relationship that was already at university when my Dad was with her. I have recently found out that she passed away last year. It upsets me greatly to know that her only son would have received all of her estate, most of which would have been everything that was left to her from our Dad. I guess we want to know are we entitled to contest her will? We were not close to her, in fact she had no interest in a relationship with any of Dad's kids. It just seems so unfair that a man that only lived with my Dad in his late teenage years and is not his biological child has ended up with everything that was his :-( That's why I want to know about contesting a will.
