Section 43-8-230

Construction of generic terms to accord with relationships as defined for intestate succession; when person born out of wedlock treated as child of father.

Half-bloods, adopted persons, and persons born out of wedlock are included in class gift terminology and terms of relationship in accordance with rules for determining relationships for purposes of intestate succession. However, a person born out of wedlock is not treated as the child of the father unless the person is openly and notoriously so treated by the father.
