@Sharin,
What country do you live in?

Contact a lawyer immediately. This is a legal matter. You need a legal expert..not a layman's opinion.

@Ragman,
Yep - this is a legal matter and, at least in the United States, a bank has no business distributing assets after a depositor has died, even if the distributees are joint account holders. If it's an estate that should be under probate, a bank will freeze the assets until it's proven that the account either shouldn't be under the estate or the estate has been settled. A bank here will be cautious and will wait.

@Sharin,
Sorry ...but sad to say I can't help you. It's way beyond my expertise and I doubt anyone on A2K is aware of the Mauritius legal system. The best answer is with a lawyer.

Being on quick research online... Mauritius is based on French civil law with some elements of English common law, If it follows French system (Napoleanic) legal system, things may not work in your favor.

Sadly, for some reason you've got a contentious conflict with your dad. Is there no one else that can reason with your dad that can speak up for your side?
