Answer:  HEIR THEIR GRIEVANCES

(If the wife is Rex’s guardian she should be alright.  But, the kids are screwed!  Unfortunately, a lot of people use their will to kind of punish their children.  It’s unfortunate, but it’s not uncommon.

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends.  Ralis95 is the head HONCHO of clue word databases, but he has nothing to do today.  Five of the jumbles came up as new, but we’ve definitely seen “CNOOHH” before.  I didn’t struggle with any of the jumbles this morning.  The answer letter layout was beautiful fourteen letter jumble.  Very nicely cryptic.  The quotation marks and the word THEIR were the big clue for me.

Great cartoon of a lawyer’s office.  Love the portrait!  Love Rex.  Hate the slacker son.  LOL!  The lawyer could be me.  Fine Sunday Jumble all around.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    UR, you BESTed me today. I did not pickup on the heir/their clue as you did. I somehow figured out GRIEVANCES after a great amount of time and the remaining 4 letters were easy to complete the pun. This Jumble gave me the most difficulty in the past 2 weeks.

    I did not pick up on that either. I thought this was a *great* puzzle. If you didn’t think of HEIR as a pun word from the clue, it was a challenge, because the clue leads you to believe the first word of the answer is the infinitive form of a verb. BZZZT! It’s a noun, which did not occur to me even with the quotation marks. Nicely BAZINGA-ED!
