My father died suddenly without leaving a will. His property included a farm, part of which is being occupied by my cousins. It is unclear whether he gave them the farm or was just granting them use of it. Should that portion of my father's farm be construed as part of his estate?

I am the oldest daughter. My mother promised to give me and my sisters a gold coin upon graduation. I received mine when I graduated and so did the next eldest daughter. However, my mother died before my younger sisters could graduate and receive their coins. The coins are there. Should these be put aside for my sisters’ graduation, or must they be counted as part of the estate?

My brothers, cousins and I have a family savings fund and we wanted to form a company to deal in land.

I have some land that they want to buy from me and give me in return all or part of its price in the form of shares. W ...

My grandma has just passed away (To Him we shall return) and i was wondering how to divide the property. She has No parents. She has One brother. She has 4 sons and daughters and many grandchildren.
