Is it legal to not name all of your children in your will?


Answer by  Ashli (251)

It is absolutely legal not to name all of your children in your will. Be warned that it could create tension between the siblings after your death though. You should also consult with a lawyer to see if you need to explicitly state that the child(ren) aren't included.

Yes, you are allowed to disinherit any or all capable adult children. However, if you plan to do so it may be best to see an attorney/estate planner to make sure that the disinherited child cannot contest the document and hold up the probate process.

A will is the last testament or document a dying person has, and they can do or put whatever they want into it. You don't even have to mention people if the person writing the will doesn't want to.

Yes it is legal. You can name whomever you wish in your will. You do not have to include any of your children if you choose not to. It is at your own discretion.

A Will is a person's last testament. Whover or whatever a person names as their beneficiary is completely legal. You will be dead and buried when the will is implemented. You won't see the repercussions. Please rethink your decision.
