  1. If he is married then the wife is the primary heir. After that are children. Any relative can file to try to get a share. With out a will there is no certainty to inheritance.


  2. Depending on the state in which he lives, the state determines which relatives would receive a share in the estate.

    It dosn’t necessarily go to just a child.



  3. Heir to the property in case of no will will be his legal wife.

    If his wife has expired too then it belongs to his children. A girl or boy , married / unmarried laws donot discriminate.

    IF the father doesn’t have any children ONLY THEN the other family members can stake a claim on the property.

    This is a generic rules of justice applicable to all civilised developed and developing countries.


  4. The property should go to the daughter. The siblings have nothing to do with the property of a brother. It would be different if the property was the fathers and the siblings.


  5. I an not a lawyer.But I’m positive that it goes to the wife and if she’s no more then to the children,but if your father and his brothers and sisters were residing in the same house then it’s a problem.


  6. Depends on where you are. It sounds from your question like English is not your first language, so you may not be in the US, in which case I have no idea what the law is where you are. Even in the US, the intestate law varies from state to state. In my state, if someone has a child but no spouse, the child is the only heir if the person dies without a will, and the siblings would take nothing. Exceptions could be if 1) the daughter had been given up for adoption to someone else or 2) the daughter was born outside marriage and the father never took the necessary legal steps to legitimate her.

    “If there is no will..the estate goes the the state that he lives in.”

    ABSOLUTELY NOT TRUE!!!! In the US, if there is no will, the state has statutes that determine who inherits the property; in most states, it’s the spouse and children, and in the absence of a spouse or children, it goes back to parents, siblings, etc. But it doesn’t go to the state unless there are no blood relatives closer than, like, third cousins.


  7. its the wife the next heir to the property and her kids the siblings of your father have no rights on the property unless the property was inherited to your father from his forefathers and your fathers siblings have not got a share of it
