1 long lost legal wife on Thu Jan 06, 2011 11:17 pm


Arresto Menor
My brother died in 2008.

He was married in 1979 but broke-up with his wife just after about a year...they dont have children.

His marriage was never annulled.

Since his legal wife left.. we have not heard anything from her.

He had a common law wife since 1982 and had 3 children( illegitimate).

Not we are in the process of fixing our estate tax/inheritance. my question is, how do we look for his legal wife, who legally also have a right to the estate left by my brother?

or can we just exclude her legal wife since we dont know where she is anyway?

thanks a lot.

one of the avenues for looking for missing persons is through social networks (yes, facebook). it's strange how sometimes this has been the most successful way of looking for someone. even law enforcement agencies rely on it.

technically, the wife owns half of all his properties. best to look for her if she is still alive. i could never recommend that you exclude her from the settlement because that would involve some form of falsification. if she's dead, then produce the death certificate. if not, have her declared presumed dead.
