What is the name of your state? kansas
My son is 5, his father in NH is terminally ill. The father and i were not married, and there is no legal custody arrangement. I am told that he wishes to have his older son, who is 27, "maintain" his visitation and is leaving it to his Will to state that. He also mentioned he will get a court order first if his laywer wont let the Will be sufficient. Can he just say "i wish to have this person take over my visitation" ? what kind of legal grounds does a half-brother have? is a will enough to have visitation stick?? what kind of benefits is my son entitled to? wouldnt my son then be in my sole custody after his fathers death??
Thank you for assisting me with my many questions.
