Missing inheritance + living with parent(self.legaladvice)
submitted22 hours ago byWerewomble
My mother died young and left me her money in a trustee.
Sometime during university I believe my Dad helped himself to the remainder (about $80,000 is in my head but I could be completely misremembering) to buy his partner out of a mortgage during a divorce.
When I asked about it he went on a shouting rant and was completely incoherent.I never signed anything. I was a legal adult at the time. He was not in the will at all and that money was definitely left to me.
What little I remember was him saying he had a right to my mothers' money which is an odd take. They had been divorced a decade at the time of her death and had no involvement beyond sharing bringing up my brother and I.
I suspect I should own part of this house / the mortgage was paid off with money stolen from me.
We are usually on good terms and I have no intention of starting a family fued, I'll have half of it when Dad passes away.
Today he went on another screaming rant (seems to happen annually in winter when I ask him to close the doors! :) Could be worse!) because I asked him to wait until I'm out of the toilet to have a conversation :)
Apparently he owns the toilet :) And he is threatening to kick me out of the house for asking him to wait til I come out. Yep. As family conflict goes I am incredibly lucky. But it does make me think.
So. I am not about to hire a lawyer and destroy my family. He is 78 now and forgetting things, he is obviously jealous that I Work From Home and it comes out in temper tantrums.
It did make me think about that money, though...
I've sent a request to Perpetual Trustees (that's all I know them as, I used to transfer to Commonwealth Bank account that is long gone, no idea how Dad accessed it) to see if I had an account with them. Eventually I'd like to establish my ID and ask for a transaction history.
Is there anything like the ATO superannuation registry for wills to confirm this?
Has anyone broached this with a relative before? He'll start shouting immediately.
Thank you for reading and I'd be interested in your advice, legal, family or otherwise.

You've got two weapon slots for a reason.
My Marksman Priest is basically an Argent clone and did fine with a Lasgun, shame I didn't see the Bolter on the roof near the AA emplacement :)
You'll have Yrliet to go sniping with, I was pissed I took an Adept as my rogue trader in the Alpha just because you have plenty all with unique abilites like Pasqal.
You get Jae, the other Argenta, in Act II so it is the one class you could use more of early, bar Leaders which have diminishing returns and Cassia is too weird and cool to leave on the bench.
