An elderly member of my family has recently passed away. We have now learned that another member of the family took him to have a new will made 2 years ago - unbeknownst to the rest of us. The person who arranged to have the new will made is also the executor. My deceased family member was taken to a lawyer he had never dealt with previously, and the person who made the arrangements was not formerly a beneficiary - and is now the major beneficiary (together with his children, also unmentioned in earlier versions of the will). This is a distressing situation as my deceased family member was suffering from Alzheimers disease. I have seen a copy of this new will, and it is a very poorly prepared document that does not reflect the astute and thorough individual that my family member was prior to the onset of his disease. The will is very brief and contains very little detail, not even including provisions for his funeral. This is in contrast to 2 earlier versions of his will, which were lengthy and comprehensive. Moreover, aside from the lack of detail and stark differences in the intended beneficiaries (the two earlier wills were relatively similar), the copy of the new will that I have seen contains absolutely no signatures, so how can I know it is valid? I have requested the lawyer who drafted the will to provide me with a copy of the original document, but have received no response at all. I believe that as someone mentioned in all versions of this persons will, I have a legal right to obtain a certified copy of the document. I feel outraged that my family member may have been tricked into doing something he was not fully aware of, and it is upsetting to feel so powerless because I don't feel I can trust the executor of will. Suggestions are most welcome.
