My question involves estate proceedings in the state of: New York.
Here is my situation.. Im 20 years old and my grandmother has had custody of me and my 16 year old sister since we were very young.. She recently passed away and did not have a will.. The mortgage is paid off.. She has 5 children and a lot of debt. Possibly 40 percent of the houses value. I already know my sister and I are not elidgable for any part of the house or sale of.. My question is because this is my residence.. What happens to me? I do not get along with my uncles, aunts, or mother.. They cannot evict me can they? My train of thought is.. The house will go to the state, the state will sell it and pay off her outstanding debt, What is left gets split amongst the 5 children.. The state will eventually evict me to start this process.. But I dont see anyway in which the 5 can legally evict me for they dont own any part of this house until the state gives it to them..
