A: This appears to be a duplicate or similar question to one posted earlier today.

Since your dad passed in Michigan you need to repost this question under the Michigan section to get answers from attorneys who practice law in Michigan.

Good luck.

A: Your 'rights' will depend on whether or not your father had a will and if you're named in the will.

You need to provide documentation to a Michigan Probate attorney and we can provide better guidance. The level of detail needed is NOT appropriate in a public forum like this!
