I am so very sorry to hear of this issue and for your loss. You would need a copy of your father's death certificate in order to open your father's estate. You can go to the courthouse and fill out the petition to open his estate. You will file it and then receive a document called a short certificate which will allow you access to his assets, etc. and you can probate his estate.

If at anytime you need an attorney to assist you, you can find a local attorney by contacting your local bar association and asking for a referral to one. You can also contact your local legal aid society as they offer free and low cost services in these types of cases. Another good resource is to contact your local law schools as they often have clinics with attorneys that will assist in these types of cases. Again, I am sorry to hear of this issue. If you have any follow up questions, I will be very happy to assist you.

Customer
Okay just one last question what can I do legally about my brother going in and out of the property (the land is in my mothers name who passed three years ago…. She is not his mer) but the house is in our fathers name. He is taking assets like vehicles etc and hiding them.

Once you have the short certificate you will want to call the police and get a trespassing order so he cannot go there.

Customer
Okay
Customer
Thank you
