I assume she did not have a will, correct?
Expert:  Chris T., JD replied 1 year ago.
Adopted children are legally no different from biological children.
Expert:  Chris T., JD replied 1 year ago.
That is, they will inherit in the same proportions as the biological children.
Expert:  Chris T., JD replied 1 year ago.
Unless there is a will, in which case the estate will be divided up in accordance with it.
Expert:  Chris T., JD replied 1 year ago.
Now, if the adopted children (or anyone else, for that matter) committed some sort of fraud on her and you can prove it, they can have that amount taken out of their share as if they owed the estate money.
