Q: My father, no will & my grandmother went before him, no will. There r only 3 blood relative my Aunt Amy brother and me
A: I am sorry to hear about the passing of your father and grandmother. You have presented some bare facts but not really a question. If your grandmother and father had valid Wills, their estates would be distributed according to the provisions of their Wills. If neither had a Will, just based on what you stated, it appears that you would be entitled to an inheritance. I would be able to answer more fully if I knew where your father and grandmother lived when they passed and whether they had Wills.
A: So, assuming your aunt and father were brother and sister, they would have split your grandmother’s estate 50-50. Then, you and your brother split your father’s estate 50-50. Assuming your aunt is not married and has no children and no will, when she dies you and your brother split her estate 50-50.
