My Father's Will
We are trying to come up with a will for my 83 year old father.I am a stay-at-home mom of 2 boys, ages 4 and 6. My husband makes 40k a year and we live in a small condo. My one brother is 49 has 2 daughter's 24 and 25 who are now out on their own. he has owned a nice home for 22 years. my other brother is 53 and has been on and off drugs his whole life and is currently back in rehab. my father had given him the family business which he ran into the ground due to his drug abuse. He has also been given cars, bail money and the "shop" from the business which he sold for 80K and blew on drugs. We are trying to come up with a fair way to distribute my father's assets.(It's not a LARGE sum of money). My father feels the bulk of the money from the sale of his house should go to me, as I have 2 small children and do not own a home. We feel the brother with the drug problem has already been given so much and would just use any of the money to further his demise. I just don't want my other brother to feel slighted. He is in agreement that I should get more because of my financial situation, but he has not said what he thinks would be "fair". My father's health is failing and we want to get this settled. I just don't want any ill feelings. When the time comes, things will be difficult enough. Any advice would be appreciated.
