    My ex-husband died before his mother. Her will states his portion goes to his children (he had two, ours and one from another marriage). The problem now is that he terminated parental rights to our child; does she have rights to his portion of the grandmother’s estate?

    All likely depends upon the way the will was worded, the state that you are in, and what "termination of rights" means. I am assuming that it means he granted custody to you and had no visitation rights. I'm not sure that this alone prevents your child from having a share of his natural father's estate.
