It depends on whether or not the parents executed a valid will. If there is a will, and its terms are not in conflict with Nebraska statutes or strong public policy, the terms of the will dictate who inherits and who serves as executor of the estate. If no will, then Nebraska laws of intestate succession dictate who inherits. The statutes are available to the public online. If you need help understanding them, you will need to hire an attorney.
