My question involves estate proceedings in the state of: Mississippi. My father passed away in March of 2008. He had a wife that lived up until August of 2008. His death certificate did not come in until that August. My sister and I cannot figure what to do. My father's wife's mother has been "taking care" of all the financial stuff. I do not believe he had a will. She also will not discuss any of this with us. We received one little bit of hidden retirement money. In my step mother's will supposedly she donated the home to some type of charity. Shouldn't my sister and I be entitled to it and any other assests? They did have a debt on the house and some other smalls debts. I just don't know how to go about figureing out what to do. They also had a prenup. My step mother's mother only let us keep some of their stuff, and she took any thing "valuable". She tells us that she will probably be in the red after all is said and done. I'm just not sure what to do. Can anyone give me advice?
