My common law spouse died suddenly of a brain anurysum and his children took immediate possession of his remains and death certificate. I was with this man for over 7 years. His children had me banned from the hospital and all decisions regarding him. He had no relationship with his kids because of the trouble they caused in his life. What can I do to get him remains and death certificate? He had no will and now the daughter is trying to get power of his estate . The hired a lawyer. Do I have any legal rights?
