    My Mum died 9 months ago and left her entire estate to me and nothing to my 2 brothers. This came as a bit of a shock as we all got on with her. the only thing I can imagine that lead to her decision is that my brothers are doing well for themselves and neither have children, whilst I am a single parent with 2 children and struggle financially. My brothers are very unhappy with the situation and say that I should give them a share. I don’t want to ruin my relationship with them, but at the same time, it was my Mother’s wish that I received the money. I’m really confused and don’t know what to do.

    It was your Mother’s wish that you inherit her estate and that should be respected.

    If your brothers are financially well-off, why do they object to you inheriting her estate?

    My younger brother says his business is not doing well and that he could do with some financial help. I don’t know whether to believe him though.

    Why wouldn’t you believe him?
