Podcast – What are pretermitted children?

Robert Ray

Podcast added!

The topic is “Pretermitted Children”

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.

So, what in the world is a pretermitted child? This podcast has a brief introduction.

I produce these Podcast to briefly discuss current topics about Texas inheritance issues. You can find more information about Texas inheritance issues on this website or on my blog above.
