My mother passed three years ago and my father passed just last year. There is property (house and land), but no will. How is the property divided in the state of MS. I have one sister who has no children and I have one child. I would like to buy her out of her share if I can. What's the best way of doing this? Do we have to get it appraised or just settle on a price we both think is fair and how is my son involved in this process..he is only 3 at this time. Is the remaining property to be split 3 ways because of him or is it still just between me and my sister. And at what point do I have to involve attorneys.
