Q: I was adopted when I was 2 years old and I just found out my biological father died without a will. Am I entitled to any portion of his estate now?

A: No, you will not inherit anything from your biological father’s estate in this case. With very few exceptions, Probate Code Section 6451(a) states that an adoption severs the relationship of parent and child between an adopted person and their biological parent.
