Maybe I am not asking the right question, if step parent wa
s left with all assets by survivors right only, in the abscence of a will from the natural father, is she then entitled to make a new will leaving everything to the stepchildren and nothing to the natural children by CALIFORNIA LAW? No will from natural father, real estate was his and later titled as husband and wife, joint tenantcy. (meaning his before he ever knew her). I am thinking she was only entilted.to 50% of all assets when the father passed away and the natural children would have priority over her will from the time of his passing. Wishful thinking?
