Father’s Death May Ruin My Family’s Relationships – Daily Dilemma [POLL]
The “Daily Dilemma” on the Sean and Richie Show is featured every weekday morning at 6:40am. We and the listeners take on someone’s problems and try to offer different perspectives. Now, these don’t have to be huge problems- it could just be something bothering you or a friend, or it could be some little thing you and another just can’t agree on. If you have a dilemma to share we’d love to hear it just email us here at the show.
Here is today's dilemma:
My father passed away recently and did not leave a will. Because his death was sudden, he had not yet specified who would inherit his estate out of his three kids. I am the youngest and I feel like I have the smallest chance of winning this battle, and it's becoming clear it will be a battle. I would like to keep the house and live in it, then eventually sell it off and spit it three ways. My one sister may also want to live in it. We meet with the lawyers in a few days and honestly I'm already dreading it.
Really, other than the house there isn't really much of an "estate", and I just don't feel like it's all worth fighting with my siblings especially at this time.
The problem is my wife feels like I always let my brother and sister take advantage of me and says if I leave this up to them I will be sorry in the long run.
The whole thing just seems ugly to me and I don't want my Father's passing to be about who gets what. What should I do?
