Q: My ex husband committed suicide on 6-28-2017. Our daughter is his only child does she get his belongings?
My ex husband committed suicide on 6-28-2017. We had only been divorced two months. Our daughter is his only heir she was his only child. The day he died his mom let one of his ex girlfriends move into our family home, before she did his mom removed our safe and all his personal items from the home and put them into storage. The ex was kicked out two months later but when she left his mom give her all of our furniture and belongings from the home. These are items him and I both bought together. My daughter was only three but we were never notified. She also let his car go back and has given us no access to the safe or anything else. Is our daughter not legally dued those items being he had no will and she was the only heir?
A: I’m sorry to hear about him committing suicide. It’s difficult to say without knowing the facts of the case. It would be wise to at least consult with a probate attorney who can review the facts of the case and present you with the options. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558
