Expert:  socrateaser replied 5 years ago.
I'm here. Sorry for the delay.

Under ORC 2105.06, a surviving spouse, whether or not living together with his/her other spouse at the time of death, is entitled to inherit the entire decedent spouse's estate, but only if all of the children of the decedent spouse are also the children of the surviving spouse.

If this is not your circumstance, then please clarify, and I will provide an updated answer.

Hope this helps.

Please understand that I "justanswer" questions “about” the law. I cannot be responsible if the law does not favor your unique circumstances. The best that I can do is to explain what the law "is" and what it "is not."

I am always available to answer your follow-up questions after you click Accept – however, if you do not click Accept, the website gets paid, and I receive nothing. This is true, even if you are on a subscription plan. So please click Accept, so that I will be able to continue to provide this service for others in the future.
