    Re: childs rights to estate

    If you and your husband are owners of the house as Joint Tenants, and not Tenants in Common, then no child, or any other potential heir, can lay claim to the house. If your husband were to die, the house would automatically revert solely to you, and nobody can lay claim against it. It is solely yours.

    With that said, all legal heirs have a right to lay claim against an estate. Even if the child from the previous marriage were omitted from any will or living trust the father left behind, he/she can still lay claim against it in Probate Court.
