If your father died without a will, it is possible you can wrap up his affairs with what is known as a small estate affidavit. If his assets were worth $50,000.00 or less (not including his homestead), this simple procedure will allow you to transfer title of his assets to his heirs. I recommend consulting a local attorney for more information about this option.

That depends on the property that your father had at the time of death. There may be some issues you can address without a court order and some that may require court intervention. To answer your question, there are some things that you can execute to allow one child.
