The estate will generally go into probate court. Yes, see an attorney at once, and do as they advise. Everyone needs a will, but so many people don't write one since they don't "have much." But as you can see with Kearly, this can still cause huge problems within families. That said, you are working from the other end. So, get legal help. It will be worth it.

You need to check what the laws are in your state. My brothers stepped right in and changed the locks on the door of our fathers place, and they sold all of his belongings for 1000.00, it was totally insane. Frankly it has placed a wedge in the family. I would also recommend contacting a lawyer before things get out of control at least try for a free consultation. I was my Mom's caregiver for one year before she passed, and 3 months for my Father who passed away as well, my sibilings found every excuse in the book not to help me out with either of our parents. But it was very disturbing how they came to the rescue when our Fathers died. Good luck to you and your sister...

People who die at home become a coroner's case, but if it appears to the coroner that they died of natural causes there is no autopsy. Or, if a doctor has seen them recently and is aware of a fatal condition, that doctor can sign the death certificate without an autopsy.
