a claim agaist his father's Will?
1. My primary question is: can a child that is born out of wedlock inherit a portion of his father's estate when the child is not specifically disinherited? Additionally, if a child is not metioned in the will, am I entitled to equal shares of my two half brothers and half sister?
2. My father deceased on 980902 and I recently determined that he is a millionare. His will was recently filed (state of RI) and it does not specifically disinherit myself. I am aware of a 1986 Supreme Court ruling that provides legal rights to illegitimate children for claims against intestate parents. However, I don't understand if that relates to my situation. Any assistance is highly appreciated.
