This is an inheritance question. I have two boys by my deceased

Customer Question

This is an inheritance question.
I have two boys by my deceased partner and their great uncle (on my partner's side of the family) has just died leaving no will.
He did not marry so his surviving relatives are a nephew(my partner's brother), his three children and his great nephews(mine and my partners two sons). Who will inherit the great uncle's estate.

Hi
Thanks for using JustAnswer. My name is Claire, I will do whatever I can to answer your question.
If the deceased had only one sibling (your children's grandparent) then his estate will be shared between that siblings descendents.
The estate will be split in two - half going to your late partners brother and half being divided equally between your children
