Dear Customer,
Thank you so much question.
My name is***** and I am happy to assist you today.
May I ask
Is there a marriage contract ?
Has the stepfather left a will?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

There is no marriage contract or will

Expert:  Claudia Schiessl replied 1 year ago.
Dear Customer,

if there is no marriage contract or iwill your mother and the stepfathers childred inherit equal partsof the assets.

Your mother gets half and the children share the other half.

They have equal rights.

So there is no need to give up part of her pension of have the bank account frozen.

If there are conflicts the probate court can help
