A: Whether you are entitled to any portion of your stepmother's estate depends on facts that you did not share in your post. Did your stepmother have a will or a trust? Did your stepmother live in Texas? Unless the estate is administered under CA law, a California attorney would most likely not get involved in the case. You can call me and I can make suggestions on how you can proceed to get answers to your questions. 916-751-1000
