Any credible evidence can be used to prove income. It's important, however, to make sure that the evidence you have is admissible under the Louisiana Rules of Evidence. You should consult with an attorney familiar with custody and child support cases to make sure you have what you need.

A child that was surrendered for adoption still has the right to inherit from his/her parent in Louisiana, even though the parent's parental rights were terminated. I've never heard of a crematorium requiring that a child surrendered for adoption sign the paperwork, however.
Scam or worth hiring an attorney
answered on May 10, 2023
Save your money friend. It's likely a scam, especially if you were contacted via email. Ask yourself why a distant relative would leave so much money to someone he/she hasn't met, and how they managed to find your email address.

You really need to speak with a Louisiana attorney who handles custody matters. There's a lot of additional information the lawyer would need to know to answer the question, such as where the child was born and when the petition was filed.
