I am 30 years old. My mother and stepfather have been married for over 15 years. Recently, my stepfather found out that he has a daughter who is 19 from a girlfriend he had back in high school. The girlfriend never told my stepfather about his daughter, but he found out because the girl researched her biological father and found him when she turned 18. We are waiting confirmation of a paternity test.
My questions are:
1.) Is there a possibility that he may owe 19 years of back child support?
2.) If my stepfather and mother do not have a will in place, where do their belongings default to when they pass? Will this daughter, or the mother from the other relationship, have claim to any of their assets?
