The way I understand it is that my mom already techinically owns 50% by community property so upon his death it would me 50% to Mom, 25% to Me, 25% to my brother. My mom and brother have never been the Philippines and have no desire to even visit. It's really my house paid with my money.
Can any one advise on how to make sure this property eventually ends up in my name when my Father passes? Will my mom and brother be able to quit their claim allowing me to take the title? BTW I don't think the Philippines has any idea that my brother exists. They know about my mom from the TCT says FATHERS NAME, FILIPINO, MARRIED TO "MOTHERS NAME" (AMERICAN)
I have read that maybe actually its the laws of where the will is executed (in would be in America) that apply? If that's the case he could just leave it directly to me?
I am not a Filipino yet, my father was already naturalized by the time of my birth, I hope to be naturalized in PH eventually (requires 10 years of being a resident, which is why I'm trying to lease the property to quality for the SRRV visa so I can start counting down the 10 years).
Can any one please help me to understand this and what I should do to protect my interests?
