Re: Challenges -what can i do
Dear Sir or Madam,
I may need more information, but if the will is valid, and specifically names the adopted children as the only legatees, then you may not inherit anything. There are always possibilities to challenge a will in form or substance, or in a circumstance of forced heirship. The fact that he owned property before he married is likely not a challenging issue, however a challenge may be available if the petition and affidavit states that he had no children other than the adopted children. Any further questions may be submitted to lawguru.com or my email below.
