A friend's husband has died ( deceased estate) and she has been presented with a will drawn up as he lay in palliative care. The husband had all properties and bank accounts in his name only and the new will was devised with the help of his daughter. It leaves 2 properties to the daughter, allows the daughter to control the release of funds to her mother from an overseas investment bank account in England and leaves 50% of the marital home to the daughter on the death of the mother. My friend is estranged from her daughter and had been prior to the death of her husband and, due to the daughter continually entering her home and verbally abusing her, has commenced proceedings to obtain an apprehended violence order ( AVO). The executors are the daughter and her estranged brother. My friend is a pensioner and is frightened and confused. Are the deceased husband's instructions legal and what can my friend and her son do re execution of the will when the daughter is the subject of an AVO?
