My seven year old daughter's father passed away in may. He had been living with his mother in south Carolina for the last 6 months. I live in Michigan with our daughter. His mother is refusing to respond to us with matters regarding his death certificate for use with friend of the court. She is also refusing to let us have his social security numbers for other legal masters regarding our daughter. I was also wondering if my daughter had legal right to some of his things, like the toys he bit her and kept at his house and some of his clothing, things like that. I am trying to find out how I can do all of this when his mother is in physical possession of every thing at the moment.
