Dear Forumosa Legends,
I have a Taiwanese friend who works hard, earns 30k, gives 8k to her elderly dad every month. She is the youngest is the family. Her elder siblings (one bro, one sis) do not contribute. In a dispute with her brother recently (regarding who contributes to her father’s hospital bills, etc), he said he would be prepared to “see her in court”.
Would it be normal for her to be passed over come inheritance time? I.e. Is the majority of the inherentance still usually given to the eldest son?
Is there anything a court could do, would do to get her other families to contribute?
It seems to me as if she risks paying out but getting nothing in return, but I’m not familiar with the laws and norms in this situation.
