I am no one to the 17 year old. I am Bill's domestic partner of 8 years. I did not marry him because I am past chid bearing age and I wanted him to possibly have more children. SHE didn't allow son to see father for 8 years because he left the Jehovah Witness organization .
Atty is threatening me that said son is sole heir and he wants his Dada's property. They will be calling me and they want no further court action unless I don't cooperate.
I let them in 2 times. This is my house by the way for31 years. They started picking up random things belonging to my deceased husband and my grandchildren(8)
I have had brain surgery and part of my skull removed recently. I am 64. My son called them and told them to call him in the future and he would meet them here. Otherwise I was not to open the door for them. I haven't heard from them since. I am trying to get his father to appoint himself legal rep. as I am doing or not doing according to the father's advice. BECAUSE THE FUNERAL HOME SAID THE MINOR CHILD WAS NOT AT THIS POINT NEXT OF KIN-IT IS Bill's father. Did I mention Bill had no will. He talked about it but at 46 he didn't feel urgent. He died of a massive heart attack intestate. right here on thegarage floor. I can't deal with this uncaring grifter at this time.
My first atty said the funeral director was right. and the son cannot retroactively sue me. First atty. doesn't have time and has referred me to another on Tues. Seems far away in view of the fear I have of this ex-wife.
