Your question is very complicated and to get a complete answer you really need to hire an attorney and give them all the information. The short answer to your question is that you can protect your rights with a good attorney. Unfortunately, your rights are limited to what planning was done, and if it was done correctly. Likely, you will need to get your attorney a copy of the estate planning documents and then they can tell you, if there is any inheritance rightfully yours and also your children. You will not be able to change the wishes of your mother or father, but you can discover if the estate is being administered correctly. Best wishes.
