Thank you. On this website, I do not always get to give good news, and this is one of these times.
1) If there is no Will, then the estate goes to the default family - see HERE, under "Who Gets What."
2) The problem is that the bank account is not part of probate. If it has an "upon death" beneficiary, then this is OUTSIDE of probate and that beneficiary assignment controls. So if the bank account has the aunt/sister assigned as "upon death" (or otherwise as a joint owner), then they get that money, not you. See HERE. I am sorry.
Please note: If I tell you simply what you wish to hear, this would be unfair to you. I need to be honest with you and sometimes this means providing information that is not optimal. Negative ratings are reserved for experts who are rude or for erroneous information. Please rate me on the quality of my information; do not punish me for my honesty.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Please use the SEND or REPLY button to keep chatting, or please RATE when finished. You may always ask follow ups at no charge after rating. Kindly rate my answer as one of TOP THREE FACES/STARS and then SUBMIT, as this is how experts get credit for our time. Rating my answer the bottom two faces/stars (or failing to submit the rating) does not give me credit and reflects poorly on me, even if my answer is correct. I work very hard to formulate an informative and honest answer for you; please reciprocate my good faith with a positive rating.
