What are the differences between an illegitimate and legitimate child?



If the parent dies intestate, a legitimate child is entitled to property from both parents. An illegitimate child cannot inherit his/her father's property if the father dies intestate. However, that child can inherit the mother's property if she dies intestate, unless she has other legitimate children.
