Hello

Expert:  Infolawyer replied 1 year ago.

His estate may challenge any claim she may attempt to make on grounds of his intent evidenced by the divorce and hopefully supported by will which confirms he didnt want her to inherit. Typically a court will not allow her to inherit more than she would have received under the divorce.
