We ( me, my sister and mother) are now in the process of dividing the property left by our father who died 6 yrs ago.
My question is, legally who among the 2 families of my brother has the right to his share from the property left by my father? His legal wife whose whereabouts is unknown and we have not seen since she and my brother seperated 30 years ago or the illegitimate family?
We are planning not to include my brother's common law wife's family because of what they did to my old mother right after my brother died, but we want to know if we have legal grounds to back it up.
Thanks in advance!
