Now that my Dad has passed away ...

Recommended Posts

and my Mom is deceased, as is my half Brother, the only family that is left is my half sister, her (divorced) husband and their 10 year Son .. the lawyers are splitting up the money and properties AND NOW an ?Uncle? has surfaced.  He says he's the Uncle of my deceased half Brother.  He hadn't been heard of or from in 30 years.

Now, is he entitled to anything ?

The will mentions funds and property to family members.

Is there a will?  If not, it will depend on the laws of the state.  I received an inheritance from an Uncle (My dad's brother)  I remember meeting once, when we visited him.  I think I was about 16 at the time.  I doubt he would have included me in his will but he had no will so the laws of the state of Maine decided who got money, and my siblings and I were part of that group.

If that's how the will worded it he used a bad attorney.  Is he in the state of Oregon by chance?

You're absolutely right.  I was just wondering what the public thought.

No, not in Oregon.  Virginia.

I don't like that wording in the will.  It's very vague.  If he's a legit blood relative not sure how they exclude him, but IANAL.   Sorry for your loss, and this just rubs more salt in the wound.

Well, there's a lot more wording in the will.  I just wanted the jist understood.

My condolences. 

I'm not a fake lawyer but I am a fake lion tamer and a fake astronaut if you need one of those.

Good to see there is a will though.

Well, the specific wording is important, not just the jist.  Does it just say "family members" or is it more specific?  That wording is what will likely decide if the uncle is entitled to anything legally.

I appreciate the well wishes.  Thank you for your kindness.

The issue being the division of funds and properties.  The will was 5 pages and there were Trust and other items so it wouldn't be prudent to publish the whole thing here.  But since I am the only descendant of both my Mom & Dad along with other things, the bulk of the funds and properties goes to me with me deciding how to divide the rest to the living family members.  The probate lawyer has left it to me how to divide the funds and properties.  I had it all figured out and everyone was agreeable EXCEPT now this ?Uncle? has appeared.  There's proof that he is who he says he is; I just don't know whether I should deduct some of the funds / properties from the few others and give him something.

I thought getting opinions would help me.

Properties? You’re definitely white and need to consider reparations.

Sorry for your loss. 

You say he's the Uncle of your half brother? I assume he was your Dad's son. Is this a sibling of your half brother's Mother? So maybe a former BIL of your Dad's? 

If so, he isn't entitled to sh!t in my book. Tell him to fock back off to where he's been the last 30 years.

He isn’t entitled to anything. Sorry but I’d make sure he was nowhere around my family nor my families properties

I haven't read above. . But here's the one thing of that line. You're not a man until your father dies. You're just not.  It's like everything changes in that one f****** moment.
