No will, and the nephew is my brothers son , my brother is deceased. I'm my aunt nephew she was my fathers sister
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I was just disconnected

If she passed with no will then default intestate law controls.

.

Did Aunt have any children or was she married when she passed? Are aunt's parents deceased?

.

How many siblings do you have, alive and deceased?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
She had no children. Her parents and siblings all have passed away
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I'm the only serving member of the family

Ok, I still need to know how many brother and sisters you have, living or deceased because their estates would stand to inherit and in turn their heirs..

Ask Your Own Legal Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I had one brother and he is deceased

Ok one other question... There was father and aunt... any other aunts or uncles? and did they have children?

Ask Your Own Legal Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
No other aunts or uncles
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
My brother has been dead for over 15 years.. Wouldn't his estate be closed?

Ok, then the way this works is father's estate will inherit aunt's estate and then you and brother's estate will inherit from father's estate. And if your brother had no other children, then the nephew will inherit from brother's estate.

.

Boiling it down, you and nephew would divide the estate evenly. But you can charge the estate executor fees for your service off the top.

.

.

thanks

Thanks.. Just couldn't understand how he would get half.

You are very welcome. Sorry the news isn't better.. But you can charge 5% of the estate as your executor fee..

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Thanks.. Have a spread sheet showings what I have spent to manage the estate at this point.

That comes off the top as expenses... but you get to pay yourself 5% before you divide up the rest..

.

It was my pleasure to work with you and help with your question. If you ever need me in the future, you can post a new question with "For Barrister" in the title and the JustAnswer employees will get it to me.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
