I want to seek advised regarding my husband's father estate. My husband's father own a residential and commercial building. My husband is illegitimate child but is filiated and recognized by his father which he use same surname with his father . After 13 years from the death of his father (with no will) his father's nephew want to administer the building but that doesn't pursue due to barred by the legal wife (American citizen) of his father. After that happened and case closed, the wife of his father paid the amt. of the lot to his father's siblings since it was from his father's father which was in common with his siblings.
Now, My husband ask the caretaker of the building that he don't have anymore inheritance 'coz it was already transferred to the wife and recently the wife of his father was just died.
The legal wife and my husband's father has no child.
Can my husband has the right to petition since he was deprived on participation of the estate?
Moreover, My husband's father has a dormant bank account which was already in escheat. Can he still reclaim it?
We just found out that, according to the caretaker it was only him (my husband) can get it. Well its quiet an amount. We are not sure if my husband is the beneficiary but undoubtedly his the only heir.
What steps/procedure we can do about it, escheat (25 years)?
Hoping for a kind reply.
