Washington State: My daughter is 16yrs old and just lost her father. We went to the funneral home to get his ashes and was told that they could not release them to her. Her Dads sister who lives in Georga state called and told them to release the ashes to Jacks step father who has no legal binding to Jack. My daughter was told that she has no legal rights as his only decendent because she is under age and that Jacks sister Mindy is the only legal next of kin. What can I do to help my daughter get her Dads ashes.
