Lost in probate
Organized by: Carl Finch
My name is Carl Finch and my situation is that I was living in Georgia when I received a call from my dad who was 86 yrs old in November 2013.He informed me that he was dying and needed me to come home. My dad suffered with dementia, diabetes and cancer.His longtime friend always assured me that she would always look after him being that she knew him for 40 years I trusted her.well I found out she was taking advantage of him and manipulating and intimidating him.He had grown weak and his cancer was back. His longtime friend created a fake will which made her the beneficiary.After my dad passed i had to retain an attorney to fight this woman in court. I was not prepared for what the outcome would be.Dads estate was valued at around 250,000 dollars and she received everything. My attorney did not represent me like he should.just interested in collecting his fee.I borrowed from friends and family and now all I am left with is the home where me and my late brother grew up in.well it's tax time and since 2007 I have been coming back and forth to my dad's surgeries and in 2008 my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. She is all I have and I need to look after her and do the best I can.Now I am aware that there are a lot of people out here whose situation is more dire than mine.I am just trying so hard to try and pay back those who helped me with these attorney fees and try and save our home. I am 58 years old and my employment history is not the best being that I left about 6 jobs 2 with health benefits to come look after my aging parents.so if there is anyone who can understand my situation i very much appreciate anything you could give.I have always given to charities and have volunteered at homes for veterans. Now I am the one who needs help.Thanks to any and everyone who took the time to listen.
