A: Although I can't speak to your specific situation I can tell you that under Oregon intestate law if a person died with no Will and he had no spouse, no children and no surviving parents his probate estate would be divided among his surviving siblings and the children of his predeceased siblings. So if he had one surviving sibling and one deceased sibling who had two children the estate would go 50% surviving sibling, 25% niece and 25% nephew.

Things that change intestate law: Will, Revocable Living Trust, naming beneficiaries before death, co-owners on assets.

I hope this is helpful to you. You will need to hire a probate attorney for specific advice on your brother's estate.
