An Illegitimate child who wish to inherit a property/land of a deceased father

Let me first thank you for putting up this site. This will be very helpful especially for Filipinos who cannot afford the services of lawyer for legal advice.

I'm an illegitimate yet recognized child and my biological father died 2 years ago. I've heard that my father has acquired numerous properties both here in manila and in the province while serving as a lawyer for nearly 50 years. He only supported my education for 2 years in college and other than that, there's none. We only have talking relationship for a year prior to his death. Part of our conversation was that he intends to give me a portion of his estate, etc. His spouse is still alive and his eldest son, my half brother who happens to be a lawyer too used to manipulate all the properties of my father. Is there a way to verify if my father still leave something for his illegitimate children (me included?)? Or do I need to wait for his spouse's death before the inheritance process takes place? Who do I need to talk to about this as I'm really in a desperate position and I don't want to escalate this within his legal family.

Your advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Try to search the Family Code and Civil Code re: liquidation of the intestate of a decedent by the living spouse within one year from the death of either of the spouse. Wala bang last will and testament ang father mo? baka naruon ung kinukuwento niya sa iyo nuon bago namatay na may ibibigay siya sa iyo.

I am not a lawyer, I am just an ordinary person sharing my ideas that might help you.
