I am starting a pretty sensitive thread, which I believe should benefit several of us here. I am trying to understand the scenario that works in the US as well as in India. My questions are: Can children of a divorced couple inherit their parents property? For example, the lady has the complete custody of the child and when the child becomes a major, can he inherit or claim inheritence of either or both of the parents properties? What happens if either of the divorcees decease, will it naturally be awarded to their child taking into the consideration of the other spouses from the later marriages? I'd be grateful, if anyone of you could advise the group or share your experiences.
