If the will states that you get something, you will receive an inheritance. If the will gives it all to the executor to do with as he sees fit, which is rare, then it will depend on if the executor wants you to have something. Usually the executor has to disperse the estate in accordance with the terms of the will. You may obtain a copy of the will from the court house.See question
A year before my father passed, he drafted a change to his will and sealed it in an envelope. 2 weeks after he passed my sister, who is the executor, opened the letter and does not agree with it and is now stated she is not going to show it to an...
Your sister may not make that decision. If a Probate is necessary, the addendum must be filed with the will. However, the document, if hand done by your father, may not meet legal standards acceptable to the court. Moreover, for a probate to occur there must be assets to probate. If all assets are in the trust name or designated to a beneficiary on your father's accounts, there may be nothing to probate.
This matter requires legal over site.

It sounds like your grandmother was taken advantage of when you were away. You might want to call the company where the sitter worked or call the police. You may also want to hire an attorney to pursue legal action against the woman and her employer, who is hopefully insured for this type of activity.See question
Mom lives with me. DMV won't let her sign the title with over without Probate papers. She thought the title was in both names like the loan stated. i just want to buy the truck from her so that i can get it out of my yard.
I'm not sure if the title is in your father's name, since it appears from your question that there might be a loan on the vehicle, but if you have title, and the car is registered in NC, procure a green 317 Form from the Department of Motor Vehicles. Fill out all of the questions on the form and then you, your mother and any other children of your father, need to sign the form. When this is done take the form, title and will, if one exists, up to the probate department in NC and have the clerk sign off on the DMV form. Then take the court form and the title back to the DMV where the title will be transferred to the person authorized to receive it on the green 317 Form.See question
Executor says my mother is leaving me nothing. I am the only surviving child. There is a will but it is not available to me now.
You probably aren't entitled to anything if your mom left a will specifically disinheriting you. However, you will need to obtain a copy of the will and have it analyzed before this can be said with absolute certainty.See question

Your job includes paying the debts of the estate in order of priority set forth under NC Law.
Debts come after payments to a spouse, children, burial/cremation, taxes, wages etc., It's your job to ascertain the distribution order. A safe way to insure that you know about all the debts, which will keep creditors from being able to come after you later, especially for debts you should be able to easily find, such as ambulance bills, which would likely show up in decedent's mailbox, is to file the notice to creditor's. The Registered Agent is required so that if someone needs to sue an out of state person, such as yourself, we can legally "touch" you in NC, by serving your Registered Agent.
As far as filing the Notice, there are often county papers which charge much less than the main paper, for this service.
Even without filing the notice you would be responsible for knowing about an ambulance bill, medical bills and other bills which normally occur running a household or likely when someone has been sick and dies.
There is also final paperwork past what you have already done, required by the court.
Often with these cases it's best to consult an attorney, public administrator or not get involved. It's a great deal more work than people anticipate and often there is little to no personal gain other than a job well done. While the job is a nice tribute to the person who died, most people I've met who took this on,wished they had not.
How do I close his bank account to pay for his cremation?
If you paid for your dad's cremation and want to get involved in your estranged dad's estate in order to get reimbursed, you will likely able to handle his estate under a simplified, small estate, Collection by Affidavit.
The affidavit must be obtained and filed with the clerk in the county he resided. This is a job, so if you didn't pay for the cremation or even if you did, you are not under any legal obligation to get involved.
