My father passed away 2 weeks ago, I found a letter that he had written that said he left everything to me. The note was dated 5 days before he passed away, but was not notarized. My father didnt have much just the home that we lived in together and his vehicles. No extra ins. policies or savings accounts. I do have 2 step sisters and they both have told me they are not going to contest the letter. So I want to know if I have to go through probate? And what is the next step to start getting his affairs handled?
