***PRETERMITTED CHILD RULE
this is if you are born OR adopted AFTER the will is executed. if there are NO OTHER CHILDREN when will is executed, the child will take the inestate share of all property not bequeathed to the other parent of the child. if there ARE other children when the will is executed but they are NOT PROVIDED FOR, then it's the same as if there were no children at time of execution. HOWEVER, if there were children at the time of the will's execution & they ARE provided for, then it is limited to the intestate share of such gift & no one else's share is reduced. contribute pro rata here. the pretermitted child rule will not apply if the child is otherwise provided for by a nonprobate transfer that TAKES EFFECT UPON THE DEATH OF THE TESTATOR. can apply to children that are born out of wedlock.
