David Reidel and Kathryn Windsor, of Alder Pollock & Sheehan P.C., “A Spouse’s Inheritance Rights Vary State by State,” published in JDSUPRA. The abstract is as follows:
If you’re preparing to get remarried, your estate plan likely isn’t top of mind.

These rights are the same whether it’s your first marriage or subsequent. Let’s take a closer look at spousal rights and some strategies you may be able to use to limit them.
