My question involves estate proceedings in the state of: Virginia
My grandfather died before 2010 and my grandmother died in the summer of 2015. Their youngest child was/is the POA and executor. My dad seems to think that his sister has stolen the family fortune (I don't know that they had that much) and wants to take his sister to court. It's been five years and my dad has done nothing, but this whole thing keeps bugging him. Is it too late to take this to court? If not, what could be some possible outcomes?
Quite frankly, I don't care but since I have to keep hearing about it, I thought maybe I should look into what's possible. I'd hate for my dad to throw his money down the drain for nothing, especially since his lawyers keep taking advantage of his cognitive impairment (yes, really).
I can say that at some point the will was changed along with the lawyer and the executor. Originally, my grandparents asked my mom to be executor because they knew she was the most honest person in the family and would stick to what they wanted (I was there when they asked her). At some point, the youngest child had them change everything, including putting the house and other property in her name. I doubt there's any proof of any wrong doing and I don't know that the other siblings would want to band together to fight this out in court.
