Lots of missing details. Is this split being decided by an estate attorney or just the living remaining sons/daughters? You need to talk to an estate attorney and soon.

Expect nothing in life and be happy with anything given to you. Be self made and stop looking at the internet for condolence.

Go out and get your own!
between this and the comments you made in the thread about making your child as uncomfortable as possible around the house so he will move out, I have to think you must be one awesome loving parent....can I adopt you as my own since my parents don't seem as cool as you?

In the real world you should recieve your fathers portion, unless it was set up as soul survivor ship then only the living siblings recieve what is left.

If I understand your situation correctly you and your cousins are lucky you are getting anything. I assume there was no will. Assets would normally pass to only the remaining immediate heirs - your living aunts and uncles.

I am in a similar situation. My Dad died in April when his aortic annueysm burst 1 month before it was to be fixed. My grandma, his mom, died a month later. It all depends on how her will is written, if she has one. The key phrase you need to look at is if the assets are divided "per stirpes". It is a Latin term, it basically means that if one of your grandmas kids should predecease her then that kids share is given to their heir.

My grandmas will says that, I wish I didn't have to get her money and my dad was still here but unfortunately I can't change that. But I will make damn sure everything is done fairly for my brother sister and myself. I love my dads family and they are doing the right thing, luckily they are not jack asses and are doing the right thing.

That being said, if you are owed that money then screw your family and make sure you get it. Your grandma wouldn't have set the will up that way if she didn't want you to have it, assuming you have a will.

If there is no will or it isnt written "per stirpes" then suck it up, be happy with what they are giving you and move on. You will have no legal recourse to take and they will have no legal responsibility to give you anything.

I truly hope you get what is yours, if you don't you will have a sour taste in your mouth about your family the rest of your life and you might as well have told them to fukc off to get your full share.

wow LOTS of confusion here. sorry about that. i asked a question, didnt ask to be judged...

anyways my grandfather was pretty loaded and had his own woodworking shop with lots of high dollar tools and machines, ect., ect. and we've already had this problem with his estate. we had to go threw a hugh hugh mess because one of my aunts is a greedy pig. now she dont work and has a 200K house thats paid for... i didnt really have a big fall out with this family but they are known for fucking other family members over big time. when my dad passed away the took most of his jewelry he made and now its just gone. whn my grandmother passed away they did the same thing, what ever they left me with one unfinished ring(that i hope to finish someday) that my grandmother got from my father and a few pics. not trying to be greedy just making sure im not getting fucked over.

and yes i was the grandkid that was always over there. she loved to do yard work and to have a beautiful lawn. when she got to sick to do it anymore i was always over there mowing, gardening, turning the compost pile, trimming trees, racking, chipping fallin branches, ect., ect..

oh and im not planning on sueing anyone. im just taking the first step to make sure im not getting fucked over. thanks.

Sounds like you may not have a choice other than to sue.

Did she or did she not have a will? If she did not have a will then I believe you should be getting your fathers share.
Is it enough money to warrant paying a lawyer to handle your claim to the estate? If it is then do that, if not then be happy with your 1/7th or whatever it is.

Let it go. The older you get the more you realize that family trumps money any day. For your family that doesn't realize this early, shame on them.

My dad told me when I was quite young that he hopes to have enough money left when he dies for me to chuck him in a cardboard box, and throw him in a hole in the ground.

All I want from my parents are my Great Grandpas guns.

Per_stirpes Per_stirpes
look at the yellow/green charts. looks like it was distributed "per capita by generation" as opposed to "per stirpes"

And according to the chart on the left you're getting exactly what you should get. The question is, which chart is the state using.
