Q: Dad died 09 will origin Florida never probated, mom 2014 no Will Florida property I paid taxes can I claim ownership?
mom was longest survivor does dad's Will still have any validity? This year I demolish trailer home to keep property enforcement from court case as I continue to pay for yard upkeep with no cooperation from siblings
Can I put in my name via adverse possession or can will be probated this late? I want to resolve this property issue fairly to me and siblings what is best recourse at this point I am executor of Dad's will do I need property or probate lawyer or both? does my mom being longest survivor rule out any children that she did not actually have? I need help to know what Florida law will allow me to do. Can I put trailer home on property and rent out to get my money back? Can I go live on Property and continue to pay taxes as I have just retired? Can anyone put me off property? Both parents died in Texas I have copy of will. at this point just want to know legally what I can, cannot do and stop spending if I will never have legal rights to this property
Thank You for your time
A: Many issues here, and nobody can read a Will online. You'll need to hire a probate lawyer to help you sort through this.

If your dad dies first, his will will control what he owned when he passed. If he left everything to your mom, her will controls the assets after her death. If she died without at will, her estate will pass "intestate" as laid out in this flowchart:
