This is a complicated situation. I was living with a man for 5-6 years. He was separated from his wife for about 15-18 years. He was a violent man when he drank so I moved out of his house and got my own place. We had an agreement that while I worked (I worked part time) I would stay in my home and when I was not working I stayed at his house) He did not drink to excess when I was at his home.
He was estranged from his children, who are all in someway involved in the Toronto Police department. His son started to come around to see him.
He had a stroke in July, and proceeded to make up his will. His son produced a will for him to sign that left everything to his wife and kids. He said he wanted to provide for me in the will and would not sign that will.
The lawyer that was drawing up his new will had the new will approved by him when he was in the hospital however it was witnessed but not signed because my boyfriend started to bleed out and became to weak to do it that day.
When my friend came home he was in touch with the lawyer and they made arrangements for my friend to sign the will but the lawyer kept putting it off. My friend had another stroke and died.
His family took his truck and some of his other items out of his house before he died and then had the doctors pull the breathing tube out of him. His living will had said he did not want to be kept alive if there was no hope for recovery however he was still cognitive enough at that time to make that decision they didn't ask him.
This was proven when he started to breath on his own and the doctors asked him if wanted palliative care or he wanted more aggressive life saving medical help. He chose to fight for his life. He lost that fight. His son had called the lawyer to find out if he had sighed the new will before he made the decision to pull the tube.
He had left the house and his life insurance to me and a small pension in the will that had not been signed.
I believe that he was legally murdered. Do I have any recourse in regards to the will?
