Child benefits in the event of Death
The woman I am considering marrying has a home in her name, but she is considering adding me to the mortgage. Her concern is that by adding me to the mortgage, if I die, does my son, (her step-son to be)have any claim to the house?

Re: Child benefits in the event of Death
He would have a claim for an undivided portion of the property to the extent of your community property interest. If this is a great concern, you and wife can make joint, reciprocal, contractual wills to disinherit your son to this particular piece of property. If you want my help on this, contact me by e-mail.
