Legal Question

Asked on: 2/11/10, 3:53 pm

My grandmother passed away 4 months ago, prior to that my mother took care of her at my moms house for over 17 months without any compensation. Now that she is passed can my mother get any compensation for her taking care of her. My mom and her sister split my grandmothers money down the middle, but is my mother intitled to more, because of taking care of her.

Legally, no. Unless she had an agreement that she would be paid she was doing her duty as a child to her mother and would be considered a volunteer. She could ask her sister if she would give her a large share but I am sure she would be upset and it might not be worth worsening any relationship them have. Money is thicker than blood.
