Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question and respond.
So can you give me more information was there any probate here , intestate probate if the will was not filed? Did the child predecease the father?How long has father been deceased?Thanks.
Based on what you present
Once the father deceased, the father's estate vested in the beneficiaries under laws of intestacy if will was not probated.. In this case 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.
Please let me know if you have follow up, appreciate the chance to help today.
