answering your question - adoption

Recently a reader left me a question which I haven't posted due to its length, but I still want to give the reader my comments on it. The gist of the question was whether a person's (let's say Frank) child who was legally adopted by another family, gets a share of Frank's estate should Frank die without a Will. Assuming that Frank died after the child was adopted by someone else, then no, the child would not get a share of Frank's estate. The child is considered the child of the adoptive family now and is entitled to a share of the adoptive parents' estates.
