Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only. Please feel free to ignore any phone service request, the expert does not send those unless asked by customer and they are sent by the site automatically.

The legal next of kin is entitled to the remains. So, if your son had no surviving spouse, who is next legal kin, then your son's descendants (children) would be next. If there is no surviving spouse or children, then the parents have equal rights to claim the ashes.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback by clicking on the 5 stars at the top of your page, as the experts are not employees of the site and get no credit for spending time with customers unless they leave positive feedback. Thank you.

This is not what I feel is fair. I’m not sure this is correct. I’m not happy or do I intend to believe in your answer. I do not want to join and do not charge me for this. Sally Sandwith

Thank you for your reply.

I am sorry you do not feel it is fair. Perhaps if you told us a bit more about your situation we could give you more information, but we do not write the laws and the laws are not always fair, regardless of what some people feel. So, while you may feel it is unfair, the law says what it says and whether you want to believe it or not or whether it was not what you wanted to hear, you will find out if you try to pursue something contrary to the law that you will not succeed.

However, you may have some additional facts you may wish to share with us for us to try to do a little more digging into laws to see if there is some exemption based on your additional facts.

No My son has a daughter that he and the mother had an agreement that he would pay for daycare and healthcare which he was doing. She is upset with him because he no longer wants the relationship so she filed for child support. Recently, they had an altercation and there is a one year stay away and they can only communicate about the child. Since this has happened she is constantly sending him txt msgs harassing him about things that don't concern the daughter and although the family has told my son to ignore her he has responded. This weekend his daughter came over and when she was returned the mother sends the family txt msg saying we are not to come the child's hair but the child's hair was matted and dirty so she was given a bath and her hair was combed. She also said that the child was returned in too small clothes but we washed and returned her in the clothes she came in. Now she has threatened to call social services and called our family unfit. It's no life get about the baby she is trying to harass the family. What can we do to protect ourselves. My son is not the best boyfriend and I don't condone his bad behavior, however, he is a good father how can we prove that the mother is being vindictive and is trying to punish him because of the failed relationship?
