    Answered . Your post is not entirely clear. You refer to German law. Is the estate in Germany? If so, contact an attorney in Germany and ask these questions. In CA your son would be considered a pretermitted heir and would likely be entitled to inherit but if there is no estate in CA that is not relevant. I suggest you pick up the phone and call an attorney and get some help as your situation seems to beg for it.

    Answered . Attorney James is correct. Your statement of information does not provide enough detail to provide you with a thorough response. You should contact a local lawyer to explore the situation in detail.
