Placeholder image


posted 1 week ago

Dear Sir,
My mother made a will in July 2016 which mentioned that all her property, cash , Gold & FD's to be distributed equally among her 2 daughters ie me & my sister. My sister also passed away due to illness in 2018. Now since we were not aware about the will we made a notary in the society mentioning that Me & my sister's husband are the legal heirs of the society. However,we now got the duly stamped ,signed, witnessed will which mentions about equal distribution between me & my sister. Now will my sister's husband be eligible to get the share of his deceased wife.?Please advise
