My sister died intestate she has no children parents or spouse who would inherit her property
I am the only sibling living her parents are deceased would i be in succession to inherit her property and we live in texas
I note you referred to her as my sister but then her parents, not our parents. That might be a very important legal distinction. Speak to an experienced probate practitioner.
My answer to this question is for general purposes only and establishes no attorney-client relationship nor is it legal advice. Legal advice should only be requested and obtained from your own legal counsel with whom you have negotiated and signed a written legal representation agreement and with whom you have had a full discussion of the specific facts and circumstances of each particular instance.
The attorney above is correct. I would also like to add that any children put up for adoption may have a right to inherit from the sibling. An attorney ad litem will need to be appointed to represent the unknown heirs, whether they exist or not. Thus, any children born to your sister that have never been in the picture could have a stake in her probate estate, which would close the door on your ability to inherit. This is probably an unlikely scenario but worth noting.
If your sister was not married, never had children, and both parents predeceased her, then the Texas laws of intestacy would divide her estate equally between her siblings. However it is not only the surviving siblings who inherit the estate. If any of her siblings predeceased her and had children of their own, those children would inherit their parent's share.
