    Please keep in mind that any of this information may be out of date or have had effecting changes not reflected, take notice of any dates given. (in part)

    "Arkansas Code (Non annotated)

    Title 28 Wills, Estates, and Fiduciary Relationships"

    "Subtitle 1. General Provisions"

    "Subtitle 2. Descent And Distribution"

    "Subtitle 3. Wills"

    "Subtitle 4. Administration Of Decedents' Estates"

    "Subtitle 5. Fiduciary Relationships"


    In the above "Subtitle 2. Descent And Distribution" is Chapter 9 - Subchapter 2 - Arkansas Inheritance Code of 1969 - 28-9-209. Legitimacy of child - Effect. I believe that is some of the information you are asking for.

    Below is a link more direct to 28-9-209.

    "28-9-209. Legitimacy of child -- Effect."


    The above link ends with the same reminder I began with.

    "Disclaimer: These codes may not be the most recent version. Arkansas may have more current or accurate information. We make no warranties or guarantees about the accuracy, completeness, or adequacy of the information contained on this site or the information linked to on the state site. Please check official sources."


    ....."Title 10. Children (2432KB)"......



    "2006 Oklahoma Code - Title 10. — Children"


    The above first link is in "ladder" as the was the first Arkansas link. The second link opened with Microsoft Word 2003, unfortunately it is cluttered with side notes, briefing and cases. Again the last link is easiest to read but may skip over pertinent information.

    Because you are not specific as to North or South I am giving both. (in part)

    "2005 North Carolina Code - General Statutes Article 2 - Legitimation of Illegitimate Children."


    "Code of Laws

    Title 63 - South Carolina Children's Code"




    "Legitimation in the various U.S. States as determined in the Foreign Affairs Manual"

    I grew up in Oklahoma and a splash in Texas. Texas has so plenty extra to grant whilst it is composed of large cities and jobs. i've got been with the aid of Tennessee, Ky and the Carolina's and there is not a damned element there nicely worth residing for. Arkansas is incredibly, yet returned, the state would not have a good purchase to grant. i think of Texas is suitable. additionally Texas would not have a state earnings tax. yet why shrink your self to in basic terms those states? Washington is rather incredibly, and likewise does not have a state earnings tax and a lot of jobs. (additionally, it would not rain almost as much as maximum human beings seem to think of, it quite rains extra in huge apple.) California is rather superb, purely high priced. Phoenix is thrilling, not almost as high priced as California inspite of the undeniable fact that it is likewise very heat.
