The will specified that I only had 1 year from my dad's death to claim my inheritance. I was not shown a copy of the will until the year had already passed. At that time, my brother offered to buy my "share" of my dad's home and land for $10,000. I felt as though I had only 2 options: accept his terms or forfeit my portion. Does this qualify as undue influence? I have also been told by another relative that my sister and her husband intend to buy my dad's home and property in the near future.
By taking the money you may have entered into a family settlement agreement and forfeited your claim to the estate if you signed anything in writing. The time period set forth in the will may have also expired.
