  1. Your best bet is to talk to a lawyer, they will be able to pull up info in the property and make the decision from there, or a judge might have to decide.


  2. If it was a self acquired property, then all his first class legal heirs will have equal share.
    All his children have equal share.
    The property will be divided in to three portions.
    1) Legal heirs of predeceased son.(1/3)Daughter will get 1/6 and the wife of the deceased will get1/6.
    2) Elder daughter.(1/3).
    3) Legal heirs of younger daughter.(1/3)Son will get 1/12. daughter(1) will get 1/12 and the second daughter gets 1/12 and the husband gets 1/12.

    The first class legal heirs of second daughter will get equal share in their predeceased mothers share.


  3. Local laws will vary, but in general in the absence of a will and with no minor dependents, the estate (all property and debts) should be split between his surviving children. However, if he died in 1982 this property should have been dealt with long ago. If you are looking to get some kind of settlement or money from your grandfather’s death 27 years ago, you should probably just let it go.


  4. There are a lot of questions here..

    Is the house still in your grandfather’s name?
    Was his wife your grandmother?
    Is this US law?

    Typically, the house would pass to his wife after his death.. (in some instances only 1/2 would pass to the wife if his children were not hers) so you may need to look at her heirs — not his.

    Then you need to look at who was living at the time of both their deaths.

    Then you need to look at state law.. sometimes by law it passes to descendants equally per stirrups.. so each living kid gets 1/3 and if deceased their heirs get to divide the property per stirrups, etc. sometimes a deceased heirs spouse can take.. sometimes it passes directly to the children.

    In any case you really may want to spend a few $ $ with an attorney to understand this.



  5. If you have any children or grandchildren you may want to open a savings account for them to encourage them to save from an early age. In general, children’s savings accounts work like adults’ accounts, but some schemes are designed specifically for children
