    proof for inheritance 27th Sep 17 at 5:45 PM
    Hi there

    Looking for some real peoples experiences and advice as im a bit jaded with lawyers, ill try be brief but to the point.

    Im being edged out of my fathers estate, and need advise to see if i will be able to secure my share, hopefully without too much stress

    I am essentially one of 3 estranged children, all 3 of us come from different mothers. our father took nothing to do with any of us, and had no will, so the 3 of us should get a 3rd, but the sister who is the executor seems to be nudging me out.

    That sister has direct DNA proof, sister 2 is listed on the birth certificate, and i have neither. My father denied i was his.

    Sister who is the executor is denying me a DNA test with her. I've had a Y chromosome with my fathers brother, which confirms to me i am my fathers son, but the executor is in rightly stating this doesnt proof im my fathers.

    My fathers relationship with my mum was very secretive, so very few people knew. My lawyer is getting me to get people who knew to give statements, and is hopeful this will be enough.

    So basically im looking for info on what i need to do/ likely outcome of this. Im in scotland (if that has any bearing on the situation)

    I can give more details if needed

    Think hes gone, not logged since early December.

    Its a shame as hed learn that even illegitimate children still have those legal rights under Scottish law.

    I hope hes got proper legal advice by now and knows that.
