Hello and thank you for choosing LawGuru!
This will depend on whether or not the father had lawfully executed a valid will and, if such a will existed at the time of his death, whether or not he "cut out" the child's would-be inheritance. If he did not have a will then the rejected child is entitled to her fair share of the estate pursuant to the intestacy statute. You should speak to a probate attorney ASAP if the father has passed away.
I hope this has helped and I wish you all the best!
