Hello, you have nothing to worry about. In French law, if you do get married, her children will have absolutly no right to inherit your French property. Only your blood children or legally adopted children will have the right to inherit your French property.
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX further complications but I think they are all covered. For example my ex-partner has a son as well by not with me and I think I can include him in my will without him having to pay tax as he is disabled. Also I have property in Spain as well but my understanding is that this is not liable to French inheritance law as i am no longer resident in France YES??
Did you get my further query OK?
That is correct. Your property in Spain is not liable to French inheritance law.
Your step son will have to prove his disablity.
