The Virginia Department of Health is of course closed over

The Virginia Department of Health is of course closed over the weekend, but the website states only close family members can obtain a death certificate- spouse, children, etc. They have been divorced for many years.She has been to the office that handles the titles many times ( Sorry, I am in Virginia, and not FL, so we are corresponding by phone), and was told that a death certificate was required from the deceased parent, to prove she is the sole survivor. How does she file such an affidavit? What office? Will they still require a death certificate?

My sister and I are the only remaining siblings left. My brother was over the estate. He died in October last year and hadn't given to my sister and I pictures and personal items that belonged to our parents. Hi wife told me nobody was getting anything until my brothers son went through it. Is that legal? My sister and I are the only immediate family siblings left. What is the law on this matter.

May natural father died in 1981. He left my stepmother as

May natural father died in 1981. He left my stepmother as executor of house and property. The will was probated. The stepmother died on May 5th of this year. My dad states in the will that upon her death that my daughter, Pamela Eckard ,act as executor of my said estate and serve without bond. The property as stated by the will is left in thirds to brother, stepsister, and self. My issue is that the stepmother previously identified in writing, all legalized, that my step sister is co-owner on all of her property, etc, and acts in her behalf. Does the latter action nullify my dad's directive that places me as executor of current property identified in his will. Help. Phone(###) ###-#### ***@******.***

Etc) so trust took over 8) got notice mom stuff in probate with same lawyer; he gets % of assets: trustee appointed Q-why would mom assets go to probate when there is living trust ?
