Legal Question

Asked on: 12/08/11, 9:56 am

My father lived in Puerto Rico and I found out by accident (on google)that my father died September 2009 and my mother, sister, and me were never notified. My mother was never divorced from my father. My father was heir along with his two sisters (deceased),to his parents' land. Now all the heirs are deceased and I have learned that one of my aunt's signed over her share of the land to her niece prior to her death. My father was allegedly beaten and thrown off his parents land years prior to his death. His non legal step-daughter (my father never married her mother)apparently collected or is collecting his death insurance and someone has filed a claim on his social securtiy death benefits. What legal rights does my mother, my sister and myself have? We reside in New Jersey.
