Q. Is there oversight if someone dies and no one files a will?
A: Your post shows Oregon as the origin so I will start off by saying probate is state specific, depending on where the decedent resided at the time of death. That being said, in Pennsylvania there is no requirement to probate a Will unless the decedent had sufficient assets to open an estate, and those assets were not otherwise distributed (joint accounts, designated beneficiaries on accounts, etc). There really is no way to give you general information on your father's estate without having some more detailed background information on the make-up of his assets at the time of his death. You should consult with an experienced estates attorney familiar with the county where your father resided at the time of his death.
Q. Thank you in advance!!!
A: This is not the kind of question that you can get a general answer to. Many questions such as does dad live in Pennsylvania or in Puerto Rico. And where were they married? and does dad have a will? you (and dad) will need to meet with an experienced estate planning attorney to make sure dad has the proper planning in place if he would like you and your siblings to get the property in Puerto Rico when he passes away
Q. Conducting business in Partnership and sole proprietorship at same time in same type of business with few modifications.
A: there is no way to give you a general answer to this question. the primary document you need to review is the Operating Agreement or Partnership Agreement for Fresh Produce. Most agreements have provisions that either allow or prohibit the partners/members from engaging in competitive businesses or other business ventures
