My dad died without a will 4 years ago. How do i fight for an newly built investment property under his name with my stepmother?

If your father passed away with no Will and no wife, then his children are the legal beneficiaries of his estate. It is important to realize what is in his "estate" and what is not. For example, any investments, bank accounts or houses that he owned as a joint tenant with rights of survivorship (JTWROS) would go to the surviving joint tenant. You require the advice and guidance of an attorney experienced in the area of probate law. There are plenty in NYC and you should seek one out. Good luck.
