In re Gilmore

January 2013
New York Law School Law Review;2012/2013, Vol. 57 Issue 3, p637
Academic Journal
The article focuses on the New York State Appellate Division's non adversarial case called as Gilmore, which includes an after-born child issue, a child born after the execution of a will. It discusses the viability of New York's Estates, Powers and Trusts Law (EPTL) in case of a child born before the execution of will, who became known before testator's death. It depicts that the law does not handle cases in which the testator is unaware of his children at the time of will execution.
