Perhaps, it depends upon the probate succession laws in the state where the property is located. This would only apply if the stepfather does not leave a will indicating the beneficiaries of the property.

When the natural mother dies do stepchildren have a legal right to stepfather's property if they are not included in the will?

No, if they are not included in the last will and testament of the deceased they have no legal right to any property as they are not considered in the "blood line" of the deceased. They are entitled to property that the biological mother held in her name only unless the property was acquired during marriage and the couple resided in a community property state. Also, they may be entitled to personal items such as clothing, pictures, family heirlooms or jewelry and so forth, but that is determined by state probate laws. Unfortunately, such situations sometimes become a matter of litigation with a judge deciding what (if any) property the surviving spouse is legally required to release to surviving family members. It doesn't sound like heirship is at issue. Given that the mother is the decedent, I assume the question concerns the mother's Will. If the mother left a Will leaving everything to her husband, or to whomever other than the stepchildren, then the stepchildren take nothing.


What does it mean when you dream five times of your dead stepfather?

It only means that you are grieving for your late stepfather, and dreams of the deceased are entirely natural when mourning. There is no significance in the number five; you have undoubtedly had other dreams of your stepfather that you do not remember and you probably will have more. This is part of the natural grieving process.


How can you get a piece of property in your name that you have been paying taxes on ten years for step father who died and left no will?

Not sure you can! The property will go to the heirs (or his creditors to pay debts), as proscribed by the laws of the State he died in. That may includ stepchildren and may not, and certainly includes them all, along with spouses, natural children, parents, nieces/nephews, etc. So all have a claim...you may only have a piece, if any coming. That you paid taxes on it when he was alive is irrelevant...you weren't buying it..you were just helping/loaning/whatever to your stepfather.

Are you entitled to any of your step father's estate?

Generally, you would be considered an heir at law only if you were legally adopted and only to the extent provided by the laws in your jurisdiction unless you are mentioned as a beneficiary under the will. In New Jersey even if you were not adopted you would be entitled to a share of your stepfather's estate only on the slight condition that there is no will, no surviving spouse or domestic partner, no surviving descendants and no surviving grandparents or descendants of grandparents. NJSA 3B:5-4(f). This statue does not make stepchildren heirs at law on a par with natural and adopted children. Natural and adopted children (and their descendants) will still take to the exclusion of stepchildren. It merely saves an estate from escheating to the state in absence of heirs at law and gives it to stepchildren rather than to the state.
