My father passed away 1 year ago. He had remarried and had two more kids and then adopted a third. Me and my sister were never contacted regarding his estate and did not inquire. I have recently found out that his second wife petitioned for conservatorship of his estate 4 months before his death and excluded me and my sister as interested persons. Since my father never removed my mothers name from the deed of the house it cannot be sold. (2nd wife not on deed) It appears the case is still open because of the real estate issue. (Found out all this thru public records). Since my mothers name is on the deed, is she the true owner? Can the deed be transferred to my sister and I? Also, is it fraud or misrepresentation to omit heirs to an estate. If so, what recourse do I have?
