An older sibling is being sneaky and trying to steal all family wealth, how can they be stopped?

Is there any law in which a siblings inheritance can be protected?

So to be specific. 1 daughter who has some medical conditions. 1 older brother who is the one that keeps trying to consume all the family wealth. There are 2 houses on 1 side. 1 house has been gifted to the older brother. 1 is the mothers house. The brother does not have is own home but lives in his wife s flat. They are looking for a house. How can the wealth be protected so that it is equally divided between the 2 siblings. How can it be protected?

    Only the legal owners of these assets can "protect" the wealth for you. Whatever they put into their wills is how the property will be bequeathed. It doesn't matter who lives where at the time of their deaths. All that matters is whom they decide to leave their property to.

    Has the parent already died? Is there a will or trust? If the parent is alive is their state of mind compromised?

    You really should consult an attorney about this legal question, a family law attorney, I think. Good luck,

    A special needs trust can be set up and funded now for the daughter with medical conditions. The brother has no claim to any of the wealth now, unless someone gives it to him. The parents can spend their money any way they see fit while they are alive. Why would the brother be looking for a house if he's already been gifted one?

      He wants a house in a posh rich area. Whilst daughter only option is to turn to government housing.
      So the brother is trying to use the mother to fund a luxury lifestyle. Whilst daughter lives on basics.

    the legal owners of the houses needs to make a will. with a lawyer. the older brother is getting the one house--are you thinking the mom will die and he will try to take that too? the mom should make a will and bequeath the house to the daughter--inheritance laws differ by state--so you'd have to look it up according to the state you live in about what would happen in the case of no will.
