(a) Except as provided in (b)-(d) of this section, for purposes of intestate succession by, through, or from a person, an individual is the child of the individual's natural parents, regardless of their marital status, and the parent and child relationship may be established as indicated under AS 25.20.050.

(2) the right of the child or a descendant of the child to inherit from or through the other natural parent.
(c) Inheritance from or through a child by either natural parent or the natural parent's kindred is precluded unless that natural parent has openly treated the child as the natural parent's child, and has not refused to support the child.
