View Full Version : Intrafamily transfer from stepchildren

I have done some checking and have found differing viewpoints on this subject. Is this a grey area, or am I missing something. Thanks for your help, in advance.

The PC isn't encouraging: 16720 As used in this part, "immediate family member" means either
of the following relationships:
(a) Parent and child.
(b) Grandparent and grandchild.
PC doesn't talk about it more than that.

Family Code 7601 says "Parent and child relationship" as used in this part means
the legal relationship existing between a child and the child's
natural or adoptive parents incident to which the law confers or
imposes rights, privileges, duties, and obligations. The term
includes the mother and child relationship and the father and child
Looks like, without formal adoption, step-parent is not included in intrafamilial.
