My father was diagnosed with Lymphoma in 2017. He immediately married his girlfriend at the time after only being together for approximately 2.5 yrs, out of fear that he would die alone as he suddenly lost his previous common law spouse of 14 yrs to a massive heart attack. She has since been making arrangements for his estate in the event that he becomes terminally ill. We have a notarized letter that states his estate becomes 50% hers and 50% minewith a clause that states if she remarries, or cohabitates with anyone she forfeits her complete ownership to me. I know a notarized letter wont likely hold up if this ever goes to court. What do I need to do to prevent her from getting complete ownership as a spouse? Thank you.
