Q: My father & his sister were co-administrators of his deceased mother's estate. My father just passed & had no will.
A: The answer depends on several factors. You have used the term "administrator," which would indicate that your grandmother died without a will. You do not indicate who the heirs of your grandmother's estate are. If your father is one of the heirs, then his share of his mother's estate should be part of his estate, and pass to his heirs. You do not indicate whether or not you are the sole heir of your father's estate. I recommend that you seek the advice of a probate attorney, who can review all the pertinent facts and give you advice based on such facts.
