I have an aunt whose only living child, a daughter, died leaving a 13-year old son. Her husband is a drug addict and we (the family) need to protect this child's interests in land (the grandmother, my aunt, has interest in 35 acres of land). How best can we make sure this grandchild will get any share of his grandmother's interest in the land when and if we sell said land? Thank you.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Originally my grandfather, the aunt's father, left 40 acres to his wife and daughter. The daughter took his one-half share in the 40 acres and divided it among herself and 7 other siblings, but the grandmother died intestate
, and one-half of the land is still in the Estate
of... We have been working to clear title so that each sibling's family (all deceased except for the aunt I mentioned above) can sell their 5 acres. Everyone died intestate. The immediate problem is this aunt whose daughter died yesterday, has cancer, and is trying to protect her grandson against his drug-addicted father.
