I am are dealing with an intestacy in which I am acting for the deceased’s siblings. The problem is that they believe that the deceased may have had one or even two daughters but these cannot be located as they are in a foreign jurisdiction. We have instructed genealogists but no luck
There is an estate that needs to be administered and my question is who can do this if the daughters cannot be located? We can obtain insurance in the event that they do come forward but initially, who can swear the Oath and how do we clear off the potential children (who we do not know if they are alive, if they existed in the first place).
