Contesting a Will is Not About Greed

What in the world is a pretermitted child?

A pretermitted child is a forgotten child who takes a part of their parents’ estate even if not mentioned in the will.

This discussion only applies where the parent dies testate, meaning the parent left a will. If the parent dies intestate, without a will, then the child would inherit a child’s portion the same as any other child and there is no need to resort to the pretermitted child statute.

The basic rules are that the child must be born after the will and is not otherwise provided for.
