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?
So my hearing is set for tomorrow. I mailed my grandmother a letter a couple weeks ago. She never responded, but some anonymous woman who knew my father chose to reach out to me. I included pictures of the letter she sent on page 33, as well as some messages she exchanged with someone else who knows my family. My father is Earl. HIs brother is Ricky. His brother is the current adminstrator of the estate, who said my father had no children. I blanked out my grandmother's last name, as well as the number of the anonymous woman
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.
Quoting Anonymous 1:
the obit said he died 'unexpectantly' so i would guess there was no will. he was 59 when he died
Quoting Sassy762: Not if he left it to charity or anyone else
