I am a resident of Hyderabad. My father died recently in Chennai and accordingly his death has been registered with Chennai Municipal Corporation.
My father has one son (with one minor son), one daughter(married and with 2 children who are majors), and wife. He has not left any will.
In most of the investments & savings he made, he has left his wife as nominee, except for a house in another district of Andhra Pradesh which is not ancestral property.
There is a matrimonial dispute going on between the son and his wife in court.
I have these following queries:
1. What is the procedure to obtain Legal Heir certificate?
2. Whose names can be / must be included in the Legal Heir Certificate?
2. Can the son voluntarily opt his name not to be included? If so, what can be repurcussions?
Thanks in advance for your reply.
