Help me settle a debate.....
If your grandparents passed away and left money to your family, by way of your parents, would you expect to be given a portion of that money? So as a grandchild there was no amount left to you specifically.
Example.....your grandmother passes away (grandfather died years ago) she leaves a total of approximately $800k. In her will it states all monies will be divided equally between her children for them and their families. The grandmother has 4 children, one of which is your father. Would you expect your father to divide some of the $200k between you and your siblings?
Hey I made front page!! I should debate with my friend more often!
Now, that said, my father died when I was 23. So, when my grandfather died, the thought of inheritance never crossed my mind. I was more than surprised when my grandfather's will provided for my father's portion to go directly to me.
