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?
Merry Christmas, supposedly the day my mom took me away from my father when I was a baby. He got supervised visitations, which i would spend at my grandmother's house. Then when I was around 2, my mom skipped town with me. She told me my whole life they were bad horrible people who would do awful things to me if they ever found me. When I was an adult, she told me they probably didn't remember me at all. I was so terrifed of my father's rejection I never reached.
The hearing was very emtional. All that is left is his house, and I was added to the estate as his child, so I am entitled to equity on the house once it sells. More updates on page 36, and that's all for now! I have work to do on christmas morning before my son gets up! As for whoever wrote that letter? Who knows! I think one of the members on here was trying to insinuate I typed it up myself, but now.
Oh...and one more thing...my father killed himself with my baby picture on the nightstand next to my bed. And he kept a rocking horse he bought me as a baby. He kept it all this time, 30 years. I know some of you may not believe this, but I truly believe he is sending me lots of hugs from the otherside. I may not have had him in my life, but at least I know he loved me
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
