Best Answer

The question is unclear as to to exactly whom the questioner is referring. It appears as if the scenario is: That their step-father died - the step-mother re-married - and they want to contest the deceased step-father's will.

The question is do you have legal "standing" to contest the will.

If they were legally adopted they MAY have 'standing' to question the will. However if the deceased made a conscious decision to omit them from his will, they probably cannot prevail.

You should consult an attorney practicing in your state for further information

It depends on the situation. If there is a will, the will determines. If there is no will the law of the jurisdiction (state in the US) will determine. In many cases the children from the first marriage are entitled to half the property if there are no children from the second marriage. Consult a probate attorney in your jurisdiction.

Are divorced Catholics welcomed in the Church?

If the divorced person is not remarried without an annulment of the first marriage the Church simply considers them as separated. The Church does not recognize divorce. Therefore they are able to fully participate at Mass and the sacraments. However, if the person has remarried without first obtaining an annulment they are considered adulterous. They are welcome to assist at Mass but are banned from receiving the sacraments until such time as they have annulled the first marriage and then been married again in the Church.
