I still dont understand. My dad was not married when he passed. My mom is still alive. My dad has 3 living brothers and one sister. No deceased siblings. Its me, my two sisters that were left everything in his will. He has no debts, owes no money to anyone. I hv no idea what example i would choose from. HELP
Its just my sisters and I, no wife or anyone else mentioned in his will. Do i have to name all our names in the negative allegation statement area of the form or just write Example 2? Or do i have to write out exactly what example 2 says word for word. Im only asking to be sure because i need to get this done the correct way.
Ok, one more thing, when i refile the paperwork can i just cross out the old date and write in the current date " as of the 45 days"? Or do i have to re-do the entire paperwork ( a new packet)?
