Estate of Bonanno, B200340

Judgment granting estranged wife's petition to have her share of her deceased husband's estate pass to her without administration and to be confirmed as property belonging to her as surviving spouse is reversed where she was estopped from asserting her statutory rights to have her share of decedent's property pass to her without administration, as doing so would be unfair and inequitable to decedent's daughter-estate administrator and the estate's attorney.
