i have no way to research statutes. does N.J. preclude adopted siblings from inheriting from biological siblings where there is no will? please answer fully.
Generally adopted is treated like blood.
This response is an opinion only and should not be considered as legal advice. Use advise at your own risk. No attorney client relationship has been established. If appropriate, you may reach the undersigned at the telephone number in the profile. Thank you.
Generally treated like nature issue unless the will specically states that non adopted children are excluded.
The only times when there would be no ability to inherit in these circumstances is if there is no actual adoption and it is only a foster relationship. Otherwise, there should be no concern or discussion. Adoption forms a legal relationship that mimics the uninterrupted biological relationship.
The answers provided in this forum by me and transmitted by users of this forum are not to be considered legally binding in any way, nor is there an intent to form an attorney client relationship. If further information is required, seek competent legal counsel.
