My name is ***** ***** and the issue is regarding probate

Customer Question

my name is ***** ***** and the issue is regarding probate and there was no will and its between myself (the brother to the deceased) and his so called son.To explain a little more about that my brother and this girl had sex he wanted an abortion and she said no so she had him and my brother ended up paying child support and had nothing to do with him what i'm asking is do I have any chance of becoming the executor of the estate so it gets distributed fairly or would I be just wasting $500.00 dollars on petitioning the probate
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: well I tried to reason (in several letters)that I was willing to help with the estate process and in return I would get a couple items of no great value which were the family (my family)pictures,a motorcycle,and 2 guitars I estimate aprox. $3,000.00 dollars worth and he was going to get the house ,car,2 other motorcycles,stocks,money in the bank,and a lot more.i just don't know what to do.

There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.

.

Can you tell me what state this is in?

.

And since brother was paying child support, I assume that brother was legally determined to be the child's father by a court?

thanks
