What if anything, can I do to safeguard an inheritance to a relative (cousin)?
Some years ago, my first cousin passed away with no parents or grandparents alive, no spouse alive and no issue.
We, the family, contested the Will and said Will was tossed (death bed Will-faulty Will -coercion).
Now it comes down to the family as per intestate laws.
Within our family is a beloved first cousin who is on Medicaid and who resides in a nursing home.
Her home jointly owned by yourself and her former husband has had the deed transferred from her name to her daughter's name who had lived and continues to live in said home for decades. Deed is now in the daughter and former husband's name.
Kinship hearing in a month's time. No problems there but how can we, the rest of the family, safeguard our cousin's inheritance?
Many thanks for all and any responses.
