The Moneyologist: I’m terminally ill — my husband says he will disinherit my son

Terrence Horan/MarketWatch

Dear Moneyologist,

I’m 50 years of age and terminally ill. My husband has said he is not sure if he will include my son in his will. He said he may leave everything to his children. He may be inheriting property which brings a very generous annual income. I feel that should not be included. I do feel that assets earned during the time of our marriage until my death — with exception of that additional inheritance — should be divided equally. Do I have legal and moral grounds to request such a request? If so, can it be made legal without dispute from himself or his heirs prior to my death and after his? We reside in California, community property state.
