What is a pretermitted child

A pretermitted child is a child who is born or adopted after a will is made and is not mentioned in the will. Most states have statutes that deal with this issue. In Texas, the statute provides that if the child is not otherwise provided for by the deceased parent, the child will take a portion of the estate even though he is not mentioned in the will.
