Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.
Can you give me more information here.Was this marital property, Was there a will here or probate filed?
You reference that 20% of house belongs to step kids.Can you clarify.
Thanks for your patience, I will get back to you this evening.Am going to be offline here about 30 minutes for dinner.
Thanks for your patience.Here this is marital property even if your name is ***** ***** it.You may need your own lawyer here to fight for it.You would inherit half, the wife's half, you get 1/3 and the step kids 2/3.So overall you get your half and one third of hers, that 4/6 or 2/3 of the whole marital house.
You would have to buy them out of their one third and pay off the reverse mortgage.That would be your remedy your lawyer can fight for your rights.This is mostly your property here, the probate judge applies the laws of intestacy.
Thanks again let me know if I missed something.
