I am asking this question for my aunt. Her brother just passed away and left his car, home and contents to her in his will. He was divorced 20 years ago and his children have been estranged from him since the divorce. He has had no contact with them and did not want to leave them anything. There has been no obit placed. They all live(d) in MA. Do the children need to be notified? If so, how and when? And are they entitled to anything or to contest the will? Thank you for your help.
