A Woman Was Furious with Her Father for Going Back on His Promise to Ensure She Would Be Looked After by Her Grandparents Inheritance, Instead He Took the Money for Himself

A woman became embroiled in a bitter dispute with her family over an inheritance she felt was promised to her. Here is what the woman had to say:

She Had A Modest Upbringing

The woman said, “We grew up fairly poor. My parents divorced young, and neither had money (until dad married a woman more successful after we grew up). There was a period of 6 months where all we had to eat at mom’s was PB&J and ramen, and I have lived in a car.”

Her Grandparents Played An Important Role

However, her grandparents on her father’s side played an important role in ensuring they didn’t go hungry. Although the grandparents were well-off and owned properties, their financial aid was mostly indirect.

The woman explained, “My usual Christmas gift was a Carhartt coat or less, a couple hundred bucks at birthdays. Never asked for much, didn’t want to mooch off grandparents or be seen as a trust fund kid. I worked bad jobs, but managed to scrape by mostly on my own.”

She Was Promised An Inheritance

Over the past three decades, her grandparents, uncle, and father have consistently assured the woman and her two siblings that they would be well provided for once the grandparents passed away. It had long been hinted that a substantial inheritance awaited them.

The woman confirmed that her grandparents’ estate was valued at several million dollars, even though she had only received limited financial support over the years. Her father had been granted power of attorney and had organized the estate into a trust, with himself and an uncle acting as its executors.

There Was An Unexpected Revelation

However, everything took a dramatic turn when her father disclosed that the grandparents’ estate would be divided equally between him and the uncle, leaving nothing for the woman and her siblings. This contradicted decades of assurances, and her father even denied ever making such promises. He accused her of greedily awaiting the grandparents’ demise to claim their inheritance, a hurtful accusation.

This change in plans hit the woman particularly hard. She was grappling with financial difficulties, including a house on the brink of foreclosure, a car requiring extensive repairs, $10k in debt, and a looming $25k surgery. One of her sisters, who was pregnant, found herself couch-surfing while searching for affordable accommodation. She had expected her share of the inheritance to help her get out of debt, secure a home, and provide for her child. Moreover, both her grandparents had indicated that their father and uncle had already received a significant portion of their inheritance to address personal debts and financial troubles.

The woman and her siblings were furious with their father, believing he was reneging on promises and taking away their rightful inheritance. They confronted him, but he vehemently denied ever making such assurances, instead labeling them as greedy and dishonest. He even managed to convince one of their sisters to side with him, straining the family relationships even further.

Was The Woman In The Wrong?

Desperate to find a resolution, the woman had even offered to ensure their father received a fair share of the inheritance, but he remained unmoved. The family was now embroiled in a bitter dispute, she questioned her father’s integrity and struggled to mend their fractured relationship.

The Internet Responded

One person said, “You’re grandparents, dad, and uncle are definitely in the wrong here for lying. But unfortunately, if your grandparents are still alive and have already given your dad and uncle the money, there’s nothing you can do. And even if your grandparents have passed, unless you have it in writing stating they owed you something, your grandparents are free to give their money to whoever they want.”

Another person said, “You are not in the wrong – but you’d Better Call Saul. I don’t think there is much anyone here can help you with (unless there is a trust and estate lawyer reading your post).
