I don't know if I hate him, maybe, I couldn't care less; I'm just waiting for him to croak and see il the Law is on his side or mine , if he will be able to disinherit me as he dearly wishes or if there is some Justice out there.
If he's intestate he can't. If he wrote a properly executed will he can.

No, he re-married and I guess he wants to leave his estate to her new wife {sigh!}
I thought that by Law he has to leave me half of his goods (as I am an only son), but you just told me that if he writes a will I can pretty well be disinherited altogether...it's soooooooooooooooo unfair.....

You can sue for your share of the estate, but if he wrote the will correctly it's difficult to overturn. Just look at Anna Nicole Smith. The best lawyers money can buy couldn't get the rightful Marshall heirs their money back.

I don't know about your state, but Texas intestate succesion at one time dictated that 50% of the estate go the the surviving spouse and the other 50% be divided among any surviving children. It now dictates that 100% of the estate goes to the surviving spouse. Anyway, good luck to you.

Parents don't have to leave their kids anything. What if your dad wanted to leave it all to charity? Warren Buffett doesn't give his kids money and he's a billionaire. He expects them to make it on their own. And I'd love it if my parents would spent more money on themselves and enjoy life more, rather than being so practical with their lives and trying to leave us kids something.

What's unfair here is that my father is no self-made-man like WB but was a daddy's son and inherited my grandfather's relative "wealth" without needing to budge a finger - on the other hand I had to work hard to find a job without help. Talk of "immanent justice"...

This is true. There are a lot of churches in Texas that command enormous mineral interests because old oil men wanted their children to make their own money and left the entirety of their estate to the local church. Its amazing when you find yourself dealing with a church that employs a landman and a geophysicist. So weird. When you step through the doors of a Cavalry Baptist Church in NE Texas and a receptionist directs you to the "Cavalry Baptist Minerals, LLC" office next to the rectory, you KNOW you're in Texas.

Well, 2 things here to the OP~~ (and anyone else out there dealing with this sort of thing)

1) Forgiveness (even undeserved, maybe ESPECIALLY undeserved) will set YOU free in more ways than you know. Something to consider.

and

2) Run, don't walk to order a book called Irregular People by Joyce Landorf. (It's a relatively old book. That's why I suggest ordering it. I believe it can be obtained from Amazon.com: Online Shopping for Electronics, Apparel, Computers, Books, DVDs & more)
