My husband resided in Japan and he past away and s family

Customer Question

my husband resided in Japan and he past away and his family never contacted me even the city hall where our koseki is recorded didn't contact me. When I found out they told me he didn't have any will or assets which is impossible. Is there any way possible to find out if that's true and if I can get back any that they took if they did? Thank you

You need would need to contact an estate attorney in Japan to assist you. Can you tell me where in Japan he resided at the time of his death?

Was he an American citizen?
