Can your father throw you out of his will?

Generally, a parent may disinherit an adult child. However, in some jurisdictions it must be done correctly or the child can claim a statutory share of the estate. The will must state that it is the intention to not leave anything to that child so the court will not conclude that the child was only forgotten.

Can a parent claim a child on their taxes if they have already gave up rights to the child?

You can only claim a child on your taxes if you provide at least 50% of the FINANCIAL support (through mortgage, food, clothing, education, etc.) for the child. If you provided at least 50% of the support for the child, then you can claim the child for the tax year in which you provided the support.

How do you calculate on pro rata basis?

For example: If a person's estate is distributed on a pro rata basis, each claimant in the estate is entitled to that portion of the estate based on the amount of his/her claim. Let's say the estate is currently worth $10,000. You have a claim against the estate for $20,000, and your sister has a claim against the estate for $2,000. There is not enough money to pay either one of you in full. This is where pro rata takes place. You compare your claim to the size of the other claim. Your claim is ten times what your sister's claim is. You will receive ten times whatever she gets, up to the amount that is in the estate. Since the estate is only $10k, you have to divide it by 11 (your share of 10 to her share of 1) 10:1. For every one dollar she gets, you get ten. So the mathematical equation: 10,000/11=909 Each part is worth $909. She only gets one part. You get ten. You will receive $9,090 and your sister will get $909. Just to be fair....I would split the last dollar with her so you each get .50 more.

Is it illegal for letting someone claim your child on their taxes?

They can only do so if the child is a qualifying child or relative anyway...and they provided the support.
