My mother died unexpectedly ten years ago. At the time, she one was of 4 siblings who was heir to my grandfather's estate, cash estimated value of $5 million. No property, just cash!
The glitch is that my grandfather died unexpectedly, just a few months AFTER my mother, so he more than likely had no chance to take her name out of his will, which means he did NOT disinherit me. None of my mother's siblings got an inheritance upon his death, instead, I assume my grandmother gained access or whatever you call it when the survivng spouse lives off the funds, but it doesn't get dispursed yet for tax reasons. I beleive, upon her death, which is any minute now, my aunt has taken power of attorney and claimed there is no money left. What can I do?
