My question involves estate proceedings in the state of: CA
My father gifted his house to his 4 children. My self being one of them. I have quarter interest in the house. If I were to pass before my dad, would my wife and child get my quarter share automatically or do I have to file some kind of legal paperwork to make sure this happens?On a side note. This is coming up because one of my siblings would sell my father for 2 bucks if they could so my wife is worried that sibling might try to pull a fast one.
