English term or phrase:Putative spouse
... I am a lawful brother of .... who died a bachelor intestate without a putative spouse.
A putative spouse is person who has cohabited with another to whom he is not legally married in the good faith belief that he was married to that person. It is a marriage entered into in good faith, but invalid due to a legal flaw, such as the existence of a prior marriage. However, knowledge of the fact that he/she is not legally married terminates this status and prevents acquisition of further rights. A putative spouse may acquire the rights conferred upon a legal spouse, including the right to alimony following termination of his/her status, whether or not the marriage is prohibited or declared invalid.
