A man lives and dies in Georgia.
He served in the army and was located for a specific time in Germany. While he was there he was in a relationship with a woman. She became pregnant. The man signed the acknowledgement of paternity while the woman was still pregnant. He left Germany some weeks before his child would be born. A few days / weeks after his return he married in the states. He adopted the son of this fresh married wife and soon after the marriage she became pregnant with a girl.
So far as a background.
Now the man dies in the scenario. He created a testament will many years ago when his son in Germany was only a couple of years old. In this testament and will he mentioned that he is married and that he has 2 children (the adopted one and the girl).
In a paragraph you can find this: "Except as otherwise provided in this my LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT, I have intentionally anitted to provide herein for any other relatives or for any other person, whether claiming to be an heir of mine or not."
- is the son from Germany disinherited by the sentence mentioned above?
- As it is his son (he is named as father in the birth certificate) and he didn´t name him in the testament and will: is this positive for the son to contest the will?
- if the family of the man wants the son from Germany to sign the acknowledgment of service and the son refuses: what will happen next?
