You helped me once before - I want to know if an inheritance

Customer Question

You helped me once before - I want to know if an inheritance contract can be voided because the person who issued the contract got married? My husband owns half of a house and has an inheritance contract to the other half with his former step-mother. She remarried and is seeking to have the inheritance contract voided. Can she do this?

Dear Customer, Thank you so much for your question. Whether this can be voided depends on the contract. If there is a certain clause a Wiederverheiratungsklausel, which says that the contract is no longer binding should one of the Parties re- marry the contract can be voided.

The question whether the stepmother can void the contract solely depends on the contract' s wording , i.e whether it contains a remarriage clause or not. If there is a remarriage clause , the stepmother can void it
