Lauren Liang’s recent article on inheritance rights of children born out of wedlock was republished by Quickscribe Reporter in its June edition. Quickscribe Reporter is a well-circulated summary of Canadian law.

In this article, Lauren discusses a recent case in which the Ontario Court ruled that a grandson born out of wedlock is not entitled to a share of his grandmother’s estate as a result of the then statutory provision that governed the interpretation of the grandmother’s will.

The case illustrates again the importance of selecting the proper venue to litigate a dispute. In Lauren’s previous article on domicile and jurisdiction published in February 2017, she provided a comprehensive analysis of the conflict of law issue in complicated estates that involve an international aspect.
