Well my father passed away in October of 2007 in his will he states, Sell my assets, pay my bills and devide the rest among my kids. He put this 1/2 sister and another brother as Co-executers of his estate, on an investment account he put this 1/2 sister as a T.O.D. (transfer on death) so she could devide the money up among the rest of his children, $215,000 of it and keep it out of probate. Well, she has taken the money and theres nothing we can do about it!! Its not like she needs it either, she is a wealthy upsate NY real estate broker in the Canangaigua are and lives in Florida on the beach in the winter and rents a condo in NY in the summer.. Wheres Lee Harvey Oswold when you need him? (just kidding) . Im so hacked I cant even see straight! So make sure your wills explain EVERY little detail about how you want things taken care of and dont trust it to ANYONE!! Money makes good people do bad things. I also learned that you can put in your will that if anyone causses any trouble they will only get $1 . I thought that was cool.
