Re: spousal heirship

If he dies without a will he dies "intestate" There are very specific statutes about what everyone gets. His widow gets some and all his children whether adult or not get some. I'd need more specific facts to tell you what each person gets. If there is enough in his estate - there would be a need for his estate to be probated.
