We don't know if he did write as the death was unsuspected. He used to say was going to write one but wanted to leave the house to my son Shepard since they were staying together since he was 4years old with 30 years of no contact with exwife and three children after they divorced.
Now the children and exwife want to come this Sunday and clear the house before selling it.
Thank you very much about the information, the other thing is the half siblings are saying 50% belongs to their mum and they have taken the car keys, the car was already given to my son before his step-father passed away but not driving it yet as he is still having driving lessons. They also took heirloom watch which was given to my son and wanted to take a saxophone and clarinet and my son stopped them saying they belong to him. Been to the police who contacted them and they said they were also taking legal advice and will definitely come on sunday to remove things.
The deceased owned the house and was the stepfather to my son.
That said we came across an old Will written in pencil in June 1988 Stating that the three eldest children were not to receive anything in exepetion of the then young daughter. Also letters that states justice did not prevail through the Divorce hearing and that the ex wife is not to receive anything indirectly through the then young daughter
How does he make the claim? Really appreciate your advice
It was only signed by deceased only that bit and he had written other things but not signed then in the end it was written to be revised when deceased was back from his work abroad but then scribbled over the revised bit.
What would be your professional advice on this matter: My son has been been living with my ex partner since I moved out (December 2005) as their relationship was father and son since he was 4 years in 1999 up to day he was decesead.
Had no contact with either ex wife and children for (30 years) until on his death bed and have already taken some of the decesead heirlooms and other stuff meant for my son.
My son, I and decesead sister concerned about funeral arrangements as we do not know what is happening.
