LONDON: What happens if your spouse dies without a will and before the divorce is finalized? Exactly what happened to Peter Sellers' kids

I read this story with much interest on the Timesonline. This is definitely my definition of a travesty. This guy pretty much disinherited his children. But then he had reached a settlement with his wife that she would have gotten about $400,000. The deal was not finalized and then he died. So she got his entire estate. He had three other children from prior relationships. They got nothing. When the wife died, she gave the entire estate to a biological child she had with another man. Wow. THAT IS A TRAVESTY. Read the story here and judge for yourself:
