Q: My nephew died recently leaving a wife and no children, one brother, two sisters, and two uncles (father’s brothers). How should the estate be distributed?
A: If these are the only heirs, and the brother and sisters are full brothers and sisters, the estate will be distributed as follows:
The wife will get 25%. The remainder will be distributed among the brother and sisters with the brother getting 37.5% and the sisters sharing the remaining 37.5% equally.
