Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hello and thank for contacting Just Answer. Your question is: What recourse do I have. The key is, what does her will say? Based on the facts you have submitted, if you were not mentioned in the final will, then you have no recourse. You did not contest the will and the time has long past for doing so. In any event, a daughter in law has no legal right of inheritance. Going to the IRS is your right as a citizen, but you should ascertain all of the facts first. Was your husband also written out, or has he been receiving his half of the inheritance?
