he has a brother who is my dad
Expert:  Zoey, JD replied 2 years ago.
Thank you. Under the California laws of intestacy, your father would inherit his brother's entire estate. You are, unfortunately, not an heir. You can see a simplified overview of who benefits under the intestacy statutes here. The intestacy statutes themselves are here.

hi zoey when my uncle past ther was 2 surviving brothers but my other uncle past a few weeks ago so will my dad get his share as well
Expert:  Zoey, JD replied 2 years ago.
If your father's other brother outlived your uncle by 120 hours, then your father is only entitled half of his brother's estate, and the estate of your other uncle will get the other half.
