Legal Question

Asked on: 1/02/10, 10:17 am

My dad died without a will and I am his only child. He wasn't married. I have a certified death certificate and it is almost 40 days but his bank Wells Fargo said they need me to show them proof I'm his daughter. They said a birth certificate wasn't enough. They said I should get a lawyer to help me. There is only $5,000 in the account, so that doesn't seem worth it.

So how can I get a legal document stating I am my fathers daughter and am the next of kin since he didn't have a will?
