Hi! My name is Richard & I will be helping you today! It will take me a few minutes to type a response to your question. Thanks for your patience!
Did the son die before or after the father? Thanks.
Thank you! Once the father died, the father's estate vested in the beneficiaries. So, the beneficiaries were entitled to their share even if they died before the father's estate was distributed. As a result, the deceased son's share would go to the deceased son's heirs under his will (if he had one) or the intestate succession laws (if he did not). The inheritance would be considered the deceased son's separate property, not community property, for purposes of the intestate succession laws if there was no will.
