Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question, conduct and prepare your response.
Yes the father had an estate that consisted of any separate or inherited property and one half of the marital property.If you make applicaiton for probate and seek to be named administrator then you can claim for the estate father's assets.
Here are the laws of intestacy no will
Florida Intestacy Rules
If there were no children then spouse got it all.If there were children the spouse gets half of a half(1/4) the kids get the other fourth.So spouse has her half, his (1/4) kids would get the other 1/4.
I appreciate the chance to help .Check the rules above to know if you are an heir under rules of intestacy that would control for father.
No you go back to fathers to see if she got it all if there were children then she only got part.His share would pass to hjis kids or their kids if deceased.The will only controls her half and what she got from dad here.
