Hudson, FL asked in Civil Litigation for Florida

Q: What are Missouri inheritance laws as to biological children when the deceased father had remarried?

Father died in 2016 in Missouri. He did leave stocks in a will. A lawyer had contacted me and this has been taken care of. However, doing research on the internet reveals that I, as the biological son, is entitled to a percentage of the estate according to Missouri law. Is this correct?

A: This is a question for a Missouri attorney. Your post is mainly being viewed by Florida attorneys because you are writing from Hudson, Fla. and did not change the location. On the question page, where it says, "I Need Help in this Location (modify if needed)", you should change your location to Missouri. Try with just "Missouri", and if that doesn't work, pick the city in Missouri where your father lived.
