Hi all, I wonder if anyone has come across this before and can give me any information.
My husband who is English, is being adopted by his French Step Mum so that he can inherit from her and his father has signed his assets over to her. As his wife, I am being asked to sign to say that I agree to the adoption but am worried that by signing this, I will agree to something I don’t understand and will effect my own rights or my children’s rights to inherit from my husbands estate in the future.
I understand that in French law, a wife has no rights to her husbands inheritance and so would it be possible in the future that some random French relative could lay claim to my estate should my husband dies before me?
Anyone got any info? would be much appreciated.
