Concerning this question. The girlfriend was on the joint tenancy warranty deed. She does get the house. But everything else goes in the Estate
. Will she still have to let them inventory contents of the house? So far she hasn't. Most of the items are part of Estate. Even her car is titled only to my ex-husband. My son tried to work things out with her so she could keep things, but they can't be stealing things. She has had several different names and addresses. I'm not sure which name is ***** ***** son is the only child of my ex. There is no will. Unless it is with papers they have hidden.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: This is general information for educational purposes only and is not legal advice. No specific course of action is proposed herein, and no attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by speaking to an expert on this site. By continuing, you confirm that you understand and agree to these terms.I am sorry to hear about this situation. You state that your son has been appointed as the Administrator of the estate. Then, he has the right to act on the estate's behalf! There is a number of things he can do to stop/undo the damage that they have caused, such as:-get a temporary injunction from the girlfriend, son, and nephew (collectively "family") from taking things from the estate and have them ordered to bring back whatever was taken - via the probate
court; or-sue the family in civil court for conversion (civil theft) to get the assets back on behalf of the estate; and/or-ask the Court to give the estate "credit" for whatever they took to count "against" them in the distribution, if they stand as heirs
.-Finally, unless her name is ***** ***** deed, she can be asked to leave the property, and I am not sure why he has not done so. She can be evicted as a "tenant at sufferance" (a tenant who was staying for free but who overshot their welcome).The police will not act because there is no court order in place that they are violating. But once/if there is a court order in place, the police will take an more active role.I hope this helps and clarifies.
