Arresto Menor
Need legal advise po. Eto po ang sitwasyon:
Legally adopted po ako ng tita ko na kapatid ng biological mother ko. Bale, 5 po silang magkakapatid.
Deceased napo yung biological mother ko and wala po syang will/ testament.
Bale, meron pong mga titulo ng lupa na namana nila sa parents nila (grandparents ko) at lahat po silang 5 magkakapatid, kasama ang yumao kong ina, ang nakapangalan sa bawat titulo ng lupa at plano nilang 4 na buhay pa na ibenta lahat ng mga lupain nila para maghati hati nalang sila sa pagbebentahan.
Kinausap po ako ng tita ko na legally, di ko pwedeng makuha yung parte ng biological mother ko sa mapagbebentahan ng mga lupa kasi legally adopted ako so 4 lang division.
Ganito po ba talaga ang proseso?
Marami pong salamat.

Reclusion Perpetua
Consult a lawyer where you are. The adopted child remains to be an intestate heir of his or her biological parents. Since your biological mother did not leave a will, you are also her heir.

Reclusion Perpetua
That adopted child remains to be an heir of the biological parent under the Family Code, but that is no longer true under R.A. No. 8552, which declares that "all legal ties between the biological parents and the adopted children are severed and vested in the adopters, unless one of the biological parents is the spouse of the adopter (Sec. 17). It is when the biological parent leaves a will when the adopted child can be an heir, as the law on testamentary succession would have to be observed (Sec. 18).
