I am a animal lover,and I'll fight against abuse of any kind,animal or human. I have worked as a caregiver for 20yrs. currently at home taking care of my Husband, Big dog & 2 white cats. I also fight for veterans right for decent health care as my husband and Dad both were in combat and in need of medical care.

  • Am I required to give my brother half of my dads inheritance if my brother stole his half?

    Our father died 12/7/10. I had the authorization to withdraw all his money out of my dads account not my brother. While I was at the bank I discovered some one had been writing checks off my fathers account to the tune of $700.00 in the last 3 weeks of my fathers life, I turned it over to the police as most the checks were written at our local Walmart, not suspecting(only in the back of my mind) my brother at this point as the check sequence was off by 700. Then when I saw he paid his health insurance premium and Verizon bill too I knew it was my brother. He stole the checks from my dads room and forged what ever he could, he even admitted to me on the phone when I asked him that he did it, My dad was a WWII army Ranger, earned a bronze,silver star and a purple heart for his heroic actions in Europe and he would never condone even his own son stealing from him. He was worried about his bank account long before he died and mentioned it to me and the family who took care of him at the AFC home he lived at. He already had lectured my brother on several occasions for his money problems. Now my brother is worried about his share of any monery my dad had left over and thinks I should hand over his half even though the we still owe the funeral home $2,500.00. He has even retained an attorney, problem is if all insurance money comes through we only have $2,500.00 to split not a big fortune.

    He also used that they have fallen on hard times that is why he has been forging and stealing from my father. He knows very littlle of hard times as he has always had some one holding up his as+. My husband and myself were so poor we did not even have a phone and relied on our local food pantry every month and got heat assistance every winter to get by we never stole from anyone or forged a dam thing. The point is does he even have a right to half of anything as when it is all said and done he probably stole as much and then some while my dad was alive? My dad was too sick with colon cancer to even pull my brother up short. For years he has been very mean to my dad and treated him with no respect what so ever, My poor father had too big of a heart and was more broad minded then my worthless brother. My brother and I have had very strained relationship for years so their is no love loss on my part. Plus now it is out of my hands the police are in control of his fate not me. Please some one give me some serious and good advice on what I should do as I too am consulting an attorney next week, but it is hard to wait that long for advice?

  • Guys! Would you charge your disabled sister contractor wages for fixing her toilet, furnace ect.?

    Let us say you are unemployed and you do occasional work for your sister and her invalid husband and she always pays you real well. Now you charge her $50.00 to put a new seal on their toilet, stating {see what a plumber would charge.) First off we only use my brother as a last resort as he does not like to help anyone and whines when he actually has to work. Also he borrowed money from me so he could make it to work for one day and now will not pay me back or offer to work it off. I know lessons learned years ago about him, he has become a sociapath and a control freak, besides being an alcohollic. I have been trying to keep the peace as our 89 year old father is dying of colon cancer and my brother only visits him 1 time every 2 weeks. That's another issue.

    Back to the question would you and what would you charge? I do not have allot of money either and I surely can not afford to pay him $50.00 every time he comes over and he knows that.

    Thanks for your help Yahoo team.

  • inheritance due to eldest child from money lent to youngest child by parent?

    My father lent 80% of his money or 37,000.00 to my younger brother and his wife so they could buy a house. All of which was never written up as a contract nor was an attorney hired to see that it was all legal. My brother and his wife stated verbally that they wold pay me half what he lent them upon his death. Not only have they not made any attempt to pay my father back but now he is on hospice and I am low person on the totem pole.

    I advised my father against this and insisted he consult an attorney, but he was so smitten with my sister-in-law who connived this whole scheme after my father sold his small estate.

    My father listed me first on his will and I am his power of attorney when he passes.

    Do I have any chance of seeing any of this or because my father made such a big blunder I do not stand a chance of a snowball in hell?

    I know life is not fair but I seem to always get shafted by my family.it is too bad we all can not get along. Thanks

I was going to have her fixed but not if she is with pups.My former vet could not give me a clear cut answer on the sex part,just he could not get her pregnant,but bring her in for a exam to be sure? DAh, doesn't sound like they are cock sure. Personally I hope she has puppies as they would make the perfect lap dog,as both parents love to cuddle. Please help and thak you in advance for your input!
