As a girlfriend, can I inherit from my lover, who was married and has now died?
/

In today’s episode, we discuss whether a person can inherit from a lover who was married and has now died. Especially if the case where the will is being challenged by the wife?

My name is Shiro. My boyfriend of six years has died. We lived together for those six years, though he was married but had separated from his wife and three children. In his will which was signed before two witnesses he left me some property in Zimmer. The property in Zimmermann is solely in his name. The lawyer who signed the will said my boyfriend was thinking very clearly and he had told me and my friends many times before that he
would give me the property.

Now, the wife is challenging the will saying the property is matrimonial property. Although she did not contribute to buying it she helped him find a tenant. She also claims that her husband was too sick to write the will and the signature on the will is fake.

My question is, do I have a chance of success to get the Zimmerman property?
