Grand daughter's right on grandfather's property

Hello experts,

I have a question. My grandfather is deceased and time has come for property distribution. His wife is still alive and he has 2 sons and 3 daughters, elder son being my dad. We are 2 daughters and a son, I am the youngest daughter. And unfortunately even my dad is deceased and my mom is still alive. Now that the property is ready for disposal, am I eligible for property? And what is my share out of the total or whatever is part of my mom is getting?

Thanks for your help in advance,

You have a share in the property. Your father is entitled for 1/6 th share in the property. His share will be divided between you, your mother and your siblings. So, your share comes to be 1/24 th of the total property.

Your father was entitled to 1/6th. That 1/6th would be equally divided between you/your siblings and your mother, each share turns out to be 1/24 of the total property.

Try mediation of relatives to help you get your share without any legal battles. If this does not work, then file a suit for partition to get your share seperated.
