Alot of you guys know about my mom passing away and the problems I was having with her will. I deleted the posts just because I figured I didn't need them up if I started a legal battle. I've found out everything I can about the problem and if the mods want to ressurect my deleted threads now, that is fine with me.
Here's what has happened for those of you who don't know. My grandpa left me a few different pieces of property when he died. The deeds were in my name and my name only. The agreement I had with my mother is that she could use the land, live in the house, etc. and just pay the land taxes on it. The tax appraisals on the 3 different pieces of land was a bit over $500,000. In real money we are talking closer to $1 million.
I recieved a letter from a lawyer on the 4th of Feb. with a copy of her will and saying he was handling the estate. She had died last November 24th. In the will my mother left all money and property to a woman I have never heard of. She left $100,000 to the ASPCA for homeless dogs and left me $10.00. That's cool, there wasn't much love between my mother and I anyways. She can leave her money where ever she wants to. I always knew she thought less of me than a dog anyways. The problem I did have is that she was trying to leave MY property to someone else.
I have gotten copies of the deeds on the property that are filed now and between 2002 and 2003, my name was forged on deeds selling it all back to my mother. I figured, this should be easy enough to prove since anyone with a half a brain could see it wasn't my signature, and on top that, none of the deeds were notarized when signed. I have spent the last couple of weeks talking to lawyers and investigators. All telling me that the statue of limitations on fraud are 3 years and I can't do anything. I just don't beleive it, but that's what they keep telling me. They say I can hire private investigators and attorneys and try to make it a civil matter, but other than that, not much I can do.
