Customer reply replied 4 months ago
There is in the divorce paper, that I would get 1/2 of the money received for the sale of the condo.

Then you would get that off the top.

The rest rest of the estate would go to the three children equally. The granddaughter would only inherit if her parent had died before your ex-spouse.

Does that fully answer your question?
