Sharing Of Properties With Siblings. by Dalnadoni: 10:40am On Sep 25, 2022
Hello Nairalanders,

I hope to get honest and open view about what to do in this situation.
So i lost my mom 2yrs ago, my mom had 5 children and am the third born of my mom. But I'm the first born of my dad reason being that my mom had married to a man at her early year and had two boys for the man before divosing and later got married to my dad.
Reason for the divorce was not something bad, but because the man my mom got married to earliar had three wives, and she had to leave because of rivary.
After she got married to my dad, he accepted to train the two boys. Now the first two boys are married, tho am not yet married am 28.

Now the issue is, my dad also died last year but unfortunatly he had no will and he had alot of properties. And because he had no will it very hard to share what he left and among who to share with.
I'm the first born of my dad and i think i should be one to decide how it goes, but my mom's first born is trying to play the role.
Pls what can i do because i dont want to fight him.

When dad was alive he treated your half siblings equally

Now that dad is no more why not continue with the equal treatment?

Am willing to but he is making it difficult because he want to be making all the dictation on what to do, and am not feeling comfortable...My dad have no relative to help decide on what to do

Who owns the properties?
If it is the father, then let those fathered by the father take charge. If by the mom, let all her children be involved.

Did your father formerly adopt those brothers of yours?

If not.... His properties are yours entirely.

You can share some TO your brothers as you deem fit out of brotherly love.

They will probably not share their father's property with you if they were in your shoes.

Don't mind my tone, truth is bitter to who do not value it

This is very dicey

What's your relationship with them

What surname do they bears
Your dad surname or their dad surname

If they bear their dad surnames, then they are not going to determine how thise properties will be shared

If they bear your dad surname
You are supposed to take a lion share of the properties be it in cash after the sales of the properties or the best of the property, located in a very good location

You need to let us know who's surname they bear

Does your kins men see them as their son or not

What kind of properties are you talking about

You can list them for proper advice

If you have females as siblings then indicate it

If you have another bother then indicate

Its going to be a tough decision but will be handled with wisdom

Your mom should have a say in this matter, the properties should be shared between all of you, you having the largest share of all.
Your siblings following, then the half.

Your dad did well by raising up children that weren't his.

And I hope you are prayerful too, watching in prayers.
Because this kind matter don run a girl mad before.

What about his (their) father?
Is (are) he(they) still in touch with him?

How can he claim to be the "oldest" son of the man whose name he doesn't bear?
Was he legally adopted by your father?
Who told you the whole story about everything, your dad or mum?

I think you need to share the problem with a lawyer and seek for his advise then share your own ideas with him

You can actually do that with two lawyers and weigh their ideas

Then you keep the lawyer you have choosen on stand bye incase it becomes violent

Then you invite the lawyer into the matter

Meanwhile, are the documents with you

You didn't answer where i asked if your step brothers are with your kins men father families or their own fathers family

Where do they actually belong in these two families since they are married

This is one of the reasons uou have to share it with a lawyer but dont name your dad lawyer yet

Uou still dodged thia question for tje 3rd time arw hour step wirh your father family's or their fathers family

Its time you get more details from the head of your family only if you know that you are very close to them than they are to them

He never knew he would die that soon after my moms death...just a year in between. I blame for not having a will. Maybe i should have talked to him about it when he was alive. But i didnt see it coming.

Don't allow your step brothers to come in and do the sharing, you are your father's first son, stand your ground. You should give them something no doubt, but it shouldn't be much. Call all your real siblings and speak with a lawyer if your step brothers try to cause problems.

The most important thing is find a way get those property documents from the lawyer first.

What are ur father's kinsmen saying about everything? If they are not aware of the current situation on ground.......u should inform them.

Then don't forget to pray.
