Questions: Question 1 "Can an extramarital child who is deceased and did not leave any descendants be able to inherit from their father; and if yes will the mom inherit on their behalf" (Provided that we are dealing with Intestate Succession AND that the child predeceased his father!) Let's look at the following scenario: Kyle was married to Samantha. He and Samantha had 2 children, Ryan and Lizette. Kyle also had an extramarital child, Steve. Two weeks after Kyle died of a heart attack Steve was killed in a motor accident. Steve was 16 years when he passed away and stayed with his mother Chantel. Neither Kyle nor Steve had a will. Answer: Question 1 The beneficiary should be alive at the time of dies cedit in order to be able to inherit. This means that in the scenario above Steve had a vested right to claim inheritance which means his share will fall into his deceased estate and if he did not have a will and only his mother is alive (Kyle predeceased Steve!) his mother will inherit his share.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
