Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you tonight.
If your mother inherited everything from your dad and she wills it to others I am afraid you would not inherit anything.Your father should have left you something, this is a common problem trusting a step mother to be fair when the reality is you get left out.If it makes you feel better I have been down that road personally and it is painful.
I hate giving people bad news, but I know you want an honest answer based on California law and the widow here can will it it whoever she wants.I know it is unfair but it is legal.
Again I am sorry to have to give you bad news, please don't shoot the messenger.
Thanks for letting me provide you the information you asked for.
