“some land that was supposed to go to me upon the death of my grandmother”
It seems that even though Grandma may have been duped by ole Dad… she was the one who conveyed the land… If Grandma wanted to file suit, then OK… short of that, (and I think I know the answer here) it is a moot point, unless you can prove some fraud on Dad’s part. Even so, if you could, is Dad financially culpable…? (Could he write a check for the value of the land…?). I didn’t think so.
This is what is referred as a “life’s lesson”; (unfortunately). You will remember this one for a long, long time.
My advice is to use this disappointment (deceit and hurt) to motivate you into doing something positive. If you could orient that emotion in that direction, there is not telling what you could accomplish.
Just the way that I view things…
