Jesus died for somebodies sins but not mine

My nephew died without a will - at the time of his death his daughter was 11. He and the mother of the child had separated before the baby was born so my sister presumed that she was the executor with the daughter being the sole beneficiary. I think within 24hrs of the funeral the ex had engaged a lawyer and my sister was directed to hand everything over to the ex and that she was to be trustee for the daughter. We doubt this is what happened and doubt there’s anything left of the estate but what can you do.
The government doesn't have time to deal with bullshit family arguments, the formula is simple and its set in stone:
Did the deceased have a Husband or Wife?
If yes, they get the lot.
If no, did they have any children?
If yes they get the lot split evenly between them.
Only if no children comes brothers/sisters- again split evenly.
If none, then cousins
If none then it goes into government coffers.
