How will family inheritance be affected in a divorce? Posted on March 30, 2011

My cousin was married and then divorced, because they couldn't live on their separate SSI incomes. Since then, they have continued to live together, each having their own separate bank accounts and SSI income. Will she be entitled to receive any inheritance from his family after his death? They have lived together for close to 40 years. If he dies first, she will not be able to live alone due to her disabilities.
