In PA are adult step children considered heirs?

Step children are considered heirs at law only if they were legally adopted.


Are you entitled to any of your step father's estate?

Generally, you would be considered an heir at law only if you were legally adopted and only to the extent provided by the laws in your jurisdiction unless you are mentioned as a beneficiary under the will. In New Jersey even if you were not adopted you would be entitled to a share of your stepfather's estate only on the slight condition that there is no will, no surviving spouse or domestic partner, no surviving descendants and no surviving grandparents or descendants of grandparents. NJSA 3B:5-4(f). This statue does not make stepchildren heirs at law on a par with natural and adopted children. Natural and adopted children (and their descendants) will still take to the exclusion of stepchildren. It merely saves an estate from escheating to the state in absence of heirs at law and gives it to stepchildren rather than to the state.

Is a step child considered a descendant?

You have asked an interesting question. There are different answers depending on the context in which the question is asked. The scientific and legal meaning of descendant is all the persons who have descended from a common ancestor. In this context, a step-child would not be considered to be a descendant. However, for purposes of inheritance, a legally adopted child and their issue are considered descendants. A step-child in a blended family who has not been legally adopted is not considered an heir at law. To a genealogist who is researching a family line, an adopted child would be noted as adopted and not a descendant of the blood. Similarly, to a medical researcher who is examining a troublesome medical history, an adopted child in the family line would not be considered a descendant.
