If there is no will, no power of attorney in FL does the daughter get everything or do sisters and brothers qualify? 2 Answers as of March 18, 2013

We can not find a will for my deceased brother in Florida and the death is unexpected. There is one daughter to the deceased and no spouse. Are the brothers and sisters of the deceased entitled to the estate too or just the daughter of the deceased.

If there is no Will, and there is no spouse, Florida law dictates that the children of the decedent inherit everything. If there are no children, then the law looks to whether the decedent's parents are still alive. Only if the parents are deceased do the decedent's siblings inherit.
