how do I get my dead father's money?
by Anonymous

i didn't know my father growing up.  I googled him recently and found out he died in 2016.  He apparently never married or had any other children besides me.  I wasn't mentioned in the obit though.  My mom took me and left when I was a baby.  He owned a garbage truck business.  If he left any money or property, aren't i entitled to it?

    Not if he left it to charity or anyone else

    the obit said he died 'unexpectantly' so i would guess there was no will.  he was 59 when he died

    I think only if you are named in the will? I could be wrong, but he may have left everything to others? The best way to find out is to contact his lawyer or whomever was in charge or his estate.

    "Entitled" to it? No.

    His will by his choices would determine who, if anyone, was left any money.

    Owning a business isn't a guarantee there's money flowing through the eaves.

     DNA test a family member..

     you know, if you're that greedy for someone else's money, that you never even met

    Why would you assume he had no will? I don’t plan to die any time soon, but I certainly have one. Don’t most responsible adults?

    As a person who owned his own business, and was almost 60, he more than likely had a will. Just because he died unexpectedly, that doesn't mean he didn't have a will... We are in our 30's (my husband and I) and we have wills. I know my parents, who are in their mid- sixties have wills and have had them since they were in their 40's.
