I am CRP , 27 year old civil engineer working in cement industry in Bangalore. My father is a professor in my native place. I am the only child to my parents.
My parents got married in 1984. My Mother's family had gifted some land and a house to my parents also did some monetory help to my father to get a job during early 80's.
Later many land property (residential and agricultural) was purchased by father's earned money and with some financial help from my mother's family. A lot of property were registered in my mother's name [some 5 nos of 60*40 sites and a big site in a small town with a present value of 4Cr].
My father also has a share of agricultural land from his father [My grand father] of about 10 acre [I am not sure whose name is it in ]
My Father was not in good terms with my mothers family since beginning and even now.
Unfortunately , My mother expired due to brain haemorrage on 2004 while i was an engg student who lived in hostel 400Kms away from my place and this news came like a nightmare. I had to digest this huge loss in my life.
As time passed [jus 6 months] My father remarried a widow (clerk in SP office - without a child) despite my unwillingness.
6 years have passed now. I am now married and living in a rented house 50 kms away from my native.
My father is not in all that good terms with me since my marriage was a love / arranged marriage for which he had to agree for the marriage helplessly [ loosing a chance to demand dowry!!]
We almost speak/meet once in 2-3 months. He never comes to see my family or call me.
Very recently it came to my knowledge that my dad was constructing a big house with a huge investment in a land that belongs to my stepmother. When asked about this the reply i got is only ignorance.
I am very insecure about the property which was there in my deceased mother's name. And i fear my stepmother's family members could do anything [bcos of police bakground] . I have no whereabouts of property related papers or my mother's death certificate .
What should i do now is a big question here. I hesitate and feel ashamed to explain this matter to any lawyer directly.
My kind request to all Law experts in this forum to kindly advice me on this regard. I think i am in deep trouble. Please help me by giving a proper advice and your opinion regarding my situation.
