Legal Answers
Q. Dad lives in California. Last 4 months was in hospice. He spent last 5days of life in North Carolina. Where probate?
A: good question. probate should be administered where the decedent was a resident at the time of death. With your facts, I would presume that California would be the appropriate state for probate as him being in North Carolina the last 5 days of his life would establish his residency in North Carolina. For the other question on the will, it depends on what the will of his friend says.
Q. My brother passed away without a will single never married no children both parents deceased leaving 2 siblings
A: It seems like you would be the heirs according to intestacy laws. You can inquire with the company who holds the Pension. If there was a death benefit it might have beneficiaries on it. If there are no beneficiaries, then the estate would be entitled to any death benefit and it depends on the amount due on what the proper procedure would be. You probably just need to start with a death certificate to ask if there are any beneficiaries listed.
Q. I am in the will, my Grandfather passed and left me $ to split with the grandchildren. My mon insists there is no will?
A: Hello Sasha. You mention and will and a trust. Do you have a copy of any documents from your grandfather or know the attorney that he might have used? You will have a very hard time without copies of anything. You can also check title to any property he owned to see if it was recorded into a trust. If it does show ownership in a trust you can possibly insist on being provided with a copy of the trust
