What Is A Pretermitted Spouse Or Child?

Video Summary

What is a pretermitted spouse or child. A pretermitted spouse or child is when a decedent drafts a will and subsequently is married, or has a child after they've executed their will. The spouse or minor child, or child, is considered pretermitted unless the will expressly provides for them in contemplation of marriage, of course we believe it'll be a little ... or contemplates taking care of them after born children, after the will is executed. The pretermitted spouse or minor child has a right to file a notice in a probate proceeding, asking for a determination of beneficiaries, so that they would get their share as if the decedent died without a will.
