im so sorry for your loss. please seek some legal advice because I sure there are different laws in different states. I hope you are able to grieve in peace and not have any legal battles to fight. you will be in my payers. marie.
I'm sorry for your loss and can't imagine what you're going through. Suggest you get legal representation so someone else can take care of that side of things for you, so you can focus on yourself, your child/ren, and deal with the grief.
So sorry OP, I'm with the others in saying seek legal advice to ensure you know exactly where everyone stands. The sooner the better by the sounds of the ex. Thinking of you xx
Op States she was with DP 9 years. Their time together is seen by the law as a marriage, and they also have a child together.
Part of the estate will go to his children from the first marriage, some will go to you depending on how long you have been together.
I would advise getting yourself a lawyer who specialises in estate law. It may help any facing about that will come.
Btw, you usually need to lodge the will (or lack thereof) in a probate court, and this can take 6 months. The will is lodged once all beneficiaries are agreed upon, so it is in your best interests to get this sorted as quickly as you can.
My heartfelt condolences to you. I cannot imagine the pain you must be feeling, and then having to deal with potential issues must be overwhelming.
ETA - I left out the bit where your child together is entitled to some of the estate as well. Woops!
