Here's the situation: My grandmother passed away 10 years ago. She left behind two children from a previous marriage, and two children from a current marriage, and a husband. The two sets of children do not get along.
We are of the understanding that there was no will, so we assumed that everything was automatically transford to her husband, even though his name was not on the property. He since has passed away in 2002, and again we assume that everything was left to his two children as they are his "natural" children. Again, no idea if there was a will or not.
The estate has now been sold for over one million. Can you tell me if the first two children had any legal right to the estate??
