Hello! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney with more than 18 years of experience. I am here to assist you with your questions. I am here to help
Also, if you would like to chat on the phone, let me know and I can make that happen.
Can you tell me, did the uncle have a will? And what state did he live in when he passed?
If he had a will, then the will dictates how the property is divided. In such a case, if you are in the will (if you are a beneficiary of the will)? Then you will receive a portion of the estate based on the terms of the will.But if you are not in the will? You have no right to any of the estate.
This is the part of my job I don't like...when the law is not in favor of my customer. I wish I could tell you that you get a portion of the estate regardless of what the will provides, but I can only provide you information based on the law so that you can act on the best available information to you...I wish I had better news, but can only hope you recognize and understand my predicament and don't shoot the messenger. I'm sorry!
Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
