Dear Learned Gentle Men,
A Couple who were issueless adopted an Orphan boy. (Not legally, i.e. no adoption deed or legal procedures followed).
Now the foster father is no more (intestate death) and his wife is also aged. Apart from his wife, there are no Class I or II legal heirs to the deceased person.
In these scenario ,
a.) Does the boy, now about 31 years of age, ( unmarried & is settled with a job now) is entitled to a share in the property of his adopted father ?
b.) Is it legally binding on the wife of the deceased to share the property left by her husband with the adopted son since he was not adopted legally through Court Procedure or through Adoption Deed ?
c.) The adopted son is abusive and violent. So the women is not interested in bequeathing or sharing or gifting the property to him. Or in other words, she is does not want him to claim any share in the property.
d.) In the event the adopted son approaches the competent court for his share (if any) in the properties, what are his chances ?
