My question involves estate proceedings in the state of: VA
My ex-husband died with no will. He left 3 grown children from our marriage and his current wife (no children). The deed to the house has her name on it with right of surviorship soooo she gets all of that. But what about his personal stuff? My son lived with his dad for the past 7 years before he even met his current wife and helped take care of him. NOW less that 30 days after he dies his wife told my son he had 30 days to move out! His dad always told my son he could have his things. He has alot of Civil War reenactment stuff and other personal things. She has put locks on the sheds and tells my son not to touch anything. My son is heartbroken, not only does he not have any rights to his home (we bought the property when he was very little) but he cant have any of his fathers belongings I want to dig my ex up and kick him in the head for not having a will! My son wants to just take his dads stuff when he gets the rest of his things out while she is not there. Can he do that? What can she do if he does? Advice would be greatly appreciated!
