I have recently found out that I may have a 27 year old

Customer Question

I have recently found out that I may have a 27 year old half-sister in Ghana. I have done a siblings DNA test on my Mothers instructions, and are waiting the results on Wednesday/Thursday. My Father who is the alledged common Father, is acting very guilty and is trying to get us to cancel the DNA test. He has confessed to having affairs. He filling our heads with fear and paranoia about my half-sister being able to claim a lot money of him, and claim part of the inheritance, or there might be other legal implications. My half sister has insisted all along that she wants nothing of us, not a single penny, only to know and love us. Could you put our minds at ease about what she "legally" can do with the results?

I would like to give my alledged half-sister closure. To put her mind at ease. As well as mine and my mothers. Father is wanting to cancel DNA test.

If the results are positive I would also like to build a relationship with my alledged sister.

Thank you for your question

My name is ***** ***** I shall do my best to help you.

In the event that this girl is your biological sister then if your father dies without making a Will this girl would be entitled to a share of his estate.

This can be avoided by him making a valid Will.

Please ask if you need further details

I see, thanks! My Father already has a will. Hence, there is nothing else for him to worry about?
