Need assistance on our grandmothers inheritance. It may be a little complicated, but hopefully some can help.
Grandmother just recently passed away, she had one daughter which was our mother, and our mother had 3 boys.
Mother was divorced then remarried to our current step-father. Our mother passed away in 2007 and all assets that our mother owned went to step-father, all these assets were based in Japan.
Now that grandmother has passed away, sounds as if step-father would get 50% of property owned and the 3 boys would split the other 50%.
Well step-father had received a good inheritance from our grandmother and mother after there passing, now step-father has remarried in Japan.
Does all the assets the step-father own get passed to his new wife or is it determined by a will of some sort?
BTW, all 3 boys are american citizens and grandma, and mom are japanese citizens.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
