  • The son can only inherit what his father leaves him in his Will. If the father wants his son to have monies; property or personal effects it will be in the Will. If the father and son have not been close and the father does not put him in the Will then the son will get nothing.
  • If there is no will, the estate will be distributed according to the laws of intestacy in the place of death. It may result in the son getting half the estate if he is a minor, particularly if the wife is not the mother of the son.

My mother jointly owns an inherited house with another family member can I inherit her half when she dies?

If your mother owns the property as joint tenants with the right of survivorship with that other person then she cannot leave her interest in the property to you. If that tenancy was not specifically recited in the will when she received her inheritance then she inherited as a tenant in common and can leave her half interest in the property to you by will. If she dies intestate her interest will pass to her heirs at law according to your state laws.

Husband and wife buy house with garndfather and mother -Grandfather dies- Does the interest in house breakdown in thirds eventhough grandma pays half of mortgage?

First, the language in the deed may determine how much Grandmother owns. Second, in some jurisdictions the operation of law may provide her with a half interest because married couples may be viewed as one "unit" so that each couple owns a half and the survivor of each "unit" would own that half interest. You should seek the advice of an attorney in your area.

If the deed says that they own it together with rights of survivorship, it will go to the spouse. Still, even if the one will says that she leaves her half to a child, the entire house will still belong to the surviving spouse if she dies first.

Can they put a lien on my house that is under my name when i get married because of his unpaid child support?

It depends on what state you live in what happens when you marry someone who owes back child support. In a community property state, such as California, he owns half of anything his wife owns, whether or not it is in his name. This means that a lien can be placed on your home even if it is only in your name, once you are married.
