Q: I want Dad to divide his estate between wife #4 and step-son from wife #2. Will the court be OK with this will?

I do not need/want any part of Dad's estate. Does Idaho law refuse estate being passed to a non-blood family member over me, his natural child? Does Idaho law allow current wife to receive 50% of his estate? Dad is a healthy 92 year old but we need to know the facts of Idaho estate laws.
