A: I suggest just calling a probate attorney and asking your questions. Once you figure out the family tree and if there are kids from a previous marriage, the size of the augmented estate... Then it is pretty straightforward... Okay not all that straightforward, but a probate attorney can walk you through it faster than trying to research all of the statutes and can ask questions you have not thought about.
