My ex-husband left money equally to our two adult children.  Our daughter is homeless somewhere and no one has any contact with her.  The attorney handling the estate will not disburse our son's half until the daughter is found and contacted.  Is there a legal reason for the monies to be withheld from our son until the daughter can be found or at least contacted?

I'm not sure what you mean by "legal reason," but your son obviously can contact the "attorney handling the estate" to ask why this is happening (and I agree that the reason mentioned above is likely and valid).

Hi @cat7lady

 

Welcome to the community and thanks for posting! As others have suggested, the estate will likely have to pay to locate the daughter (using a private investigator or other means), and they need to handle these expenses before distributing the estate. Your son can certainly contact the estate attorney to discuss the plan of action.

 

Best of luck!
