No. It's your Will, and those wishes must be followed. The only thing that will happen is that probate will come into effect after the death of the person, all creditors, house/property taxes and personal taxes are paid off. What is left in the estate after that goes to the person(s) you have named in your Will. ==Additional Information== In Texas, the right to inherit from a biological parent is not cut off by termination of the parent-child relationship, UNLESS the order terminating the relationship so provides. One of my colleagues was involved in a case in which an adopted child, then an adult, was able to unseal the file in which the parent-child relationship was terminated. She used the argument that the right to inherit gave her the right to the information. Having said that, Texas does not have forced heirship. A properly signed Will can disinherit a child, including one from a terminated relationship. A child born after the signing of a Will in which the Will does not provide for after born children is treated as if the child had been included in the Will and the same as the testator's other children or, if the testator had no other children, the child gets the share the child would have gotten had the decedent died intestate.
