Dad inherited beach front lots. With Son’s help, he built and managed two rental complexes on the property. Dad subsequently remarried four times. He and Son maintained a good relationship. Dad created a trust for the purpose of paying Wife #5’s living expenses (for the remainder of her life) and transferring the beach property to his Son.
After Dad suffered a stroke, Wife #5 used an out of county attorney to create a trust which gave all of Dad’s assets to her. Dad’s care provider saw Wife #5 badger Dad into signing the new trust. On his death bed, Dad told Son to contest the new trust.
