Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Hello. My name is***** am an attorney. I am here to help you with your question. We may discuss the issues too. Let me know that sounds good.
Yes. Certainly. Let me review it...brb...
A heir to an estate does not have to sign any documents waiving a right to the estate. You do not mention whether there is a will. Was there one? If so, where you named?
It would pass under the intestacy laws of New Jersey. Did your Mother have other children with any another man? I am asking because possibly it matters.
Through the intestacy laws, your Mother would receive everything anyway since all the kids are from the dad and mom together. In other words, you mom gets your dad's estate. With regard to your grandfather's estate, unless there was a will, then if his wife died, his kids would get it, not the grandkids. We can discuss more if you want to do so.
