Greed
When my father died, I was too upset to even think about a will. I loved him so much.

My father made very good money. We had always been well-off with beautiful houses, cars, and anything we wanted. He knew he was going to die, and he'd made it clear that he was going to leave US money.

When my relatives asked to see it, she first told them they could drive four hours to where we lived, meet her at the bank, and she would open the safety deposit box, not letting them touch anything, and putting it right back. She said this knowing they wouldn't actually do that.

When my half sisters pressed it, she advised them to "pay for their own lawyer" if they wanted to see it, or deal with her lawyer.

After he died, my mother immedately paid our experensive house off in full, plus some other things. Every now and then, she'd forget and let it slip how many thousands of dollars she had in such and such account, etc.

What's sad is, here we are struggling like the average family. If I had the money that was rightfully mine, I could have used it to pay for a house in cash. My family could be living comfortably right now. After all, that was the reason my dad wanted me to have it.

Every now and then, she buys my expensive gifts and expects a big "thank you". I'm like, "Thank you for taking MY money and buying me presents with it?" This helps her control the money, never giving me freedom of how to spend it. She's a control freak.

To this day I don't know what was left to me, and never will. It's not that I wanted the money, but man at the greed! This makes me sick! My Father had right under a million in his will. To this day, I have no idea how much was supposed to go to me, or my half-sisers and half-brother. I never will.

Re: Greed
As Plato stated "greed is the greatest enemy of mankind" I am not a greedy sort, yet like you I am dealing with it in my family. After a relative with money dies you get to see the vulture and vampire side to your family. Remember "time wounds all heels" have patience, you will see.

Re: Greed
Can you not demand to see the Will, if you are a named beneficiary? I don't know how the law works in these matters.

It's not your money, and you don't deserve it.

It was your father's money, to do with as he wished.

Quit wasting your energy trying to claim what's not yours, and just make your own way in life.

I'm his daughter, and it was supposed to be split between my , my mom, and my half siblings. Not only had he told us that he'd leave us some, but we would have known that without asking. He was the kind of man who would break his back to take care of us, even after his death.

I was only 19 when he died. My mother took over all major decisions, and meetings with lawyers. The will, I'm guessing, just simply said that such and such should go to my mother and me. My mother assured her lawyer that she would give me my part. My dad was also confident she would do as he wished. He was sadly wrong.

I think you have grounds for a legal standing in this matter. A Will is a legal document. If you know who your father's lawyer is who was likely to have drawn up the Will, you could contact him and request (or demand) to see it. He will have a copy. And since you claim that you are named as a beneficiary you have every entitlement to receive the part of his estate that was left to you.

I can't believe that you have not looked into this course of action already. Or have you?

Re: Greed
Without a will, his spouse, his own children (which would only include step children if he legally adopted them and their biologial father gave up his parental rights) and even his own parents and siblings are the legal heirs to his estate. You need to get a lawyer or educate yourself as to how to navigate the legal process. Contact your state's probate department.
Your mother could be forced to sell the the house and divide the proceeds among all family members. That is how it is done when there is no will. You have been manipulated into giving up your rights. Most affluent people have lawyers who handle these things. Are you certain your father didn't have an attorney? There is always an executor of an estate - either the attorney or a person named in the will. If no will exists, one must petition probate to appoint one.
Just look up probate law and you will learn a lot.
If you start a probate process she will have to go through the legal process accordingly, or she will provide the will.
