Self-defense is something that the police could have considered in their investigation and in consideration of laying the charges, but ultimately they decided it was not overwhelming enough to...Read more »
You'll still need to notify her unless her parental rights were terminated. Unless you got "sole custody" through a DHS proceeding, her rights have probably not been terminated.

It depends on whether the deceased spouse had any children. It also depends on how each piece of property is titled. Real estate may be titled such that it passes automatically to the survivor. Bank accounts may have payable on death beneficiaries.
If both a child's parents pass away, someone who is related to the child may petition a court to appoint the relative as the child's guardian.

It all depends on the circumstances. If the "physically aggressive trespasser" was using or about to use force that could have caused significant injury to you, you are allowed to defend yourself with about an equal amount of force.
