Jane died without leaving a will. Her survivors include: 2 daughters who each have 2 children; two grandsons who are the children of Jane's son Chris who died in 2007, a sister, a cousin and her mother. How and to whom will Jane's estate be distributed?

Generally, the two daughters will get 1/3 each . Chris's kids will each get 1/6th of the estate. There are many variables that can be effected by a small change in facts.
