Legal Answers
Q. Sister petitioned ok court to be appointed administrator of estate saying there is no other living heirs! Is that legal
A: I'm sorry for your loss. You, as an heir of your father, have a right to part of his estate if he died without a will. Even if you were adopted later on, you are still his biological son and his heir. As an heir you should have received notice of the hearing. However, sometimes notice of a hearing is given by publication (in the newspaper) if it cannot be determined where an heir is located. I'm not sure what type of hearing is on Monday but you should appear and explain to the Judge that you are an heir of your father. The Judge will determine how to proceed. However, you will most likely need an attorney to help you. Good luck!
