| | Is My Mother Taking Money From Assets Left For The Children?
My father past away last year and I know that the family home was to be left to the children after my mother passes away. I received a message from her asking me (along with my other siblings) to sign a document, I haven't received yet, have it notarized and sent back to her so a lawyer can file something so she won't have to pay taxes on the home this year. My mother unfortunately is not the most trustworthy person I know and I am wondering if this sounds like a normal type of thing for a recent widow or is she looking to live tax free with some type of agreement that all taxes to be paid will be put on hold until after she passes away and then they will be deducted from the value of the home which was suppose to be for the children to divide. I know dad took care of her financial needs through his life insurance. I hate to even ask this but it would be a dishonor to my father to manipulate his will which I have not seen and it's been almost a year since his passing.
Thank you for any help you can provide.
