Does a gas company have legal obligation to find all living heirs when paying dividends?
Situtation in brief, my 5 uncles have decided they alone will receive money from the leasing and drilling of my grandfathers mineral rights. (that by the way never went through probate). Since my mother (my uncles sister) has passed away they do not feel tha I have a right to my mothers part of the mineral rights. I fear if I do not act time will run out on any legal action that I can take as they have hidden this for some time now. Do you know how I can find out how much has been paid or who is drilling? Is it fraud for my uncles to take this money knowing their are other living heirs? Any information or direction is greatly appreciated.
