Fox, many times when an elderly parent is suffering from dementia or Alzheimer's, there are those who willingly take advantage of their diminished mental state. If your sister and BIL have coerced her into something she wouldn't have normally done, you have the right to fight their moral bankruptcy. Whether or not what the attorney did was legally right, it does show a level of compassion you don't usually see from those in the law field.
My question to you is this; does the division of property mean more to you than staying in touch with family? That's what you have to determine on your own. I don't know your family or the type of relationships you have.
I lost my father almost 2 years ago, and my mother is starting to go downhill rapidly. Some of the vultures in the family are already circling, and it makes me ill to know that to them THINGS are more important than people and relationships. I absolutely refuse to get into a battle over material things.
You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!
