"Welcome to -- When adult children marry and leave home, life can sometimes get more complex instead of simpler.  Being a mother-in-law or daughter-in-law can be tough.  How do we extend love and support to our mothers-in-law, adult children, daughters-in-law, sons-in-law, and grandchildren without interfering?  What do we do when there are communication problems?  How can we ask for help when we need it without being a burden?  And how do our family members feel about these issues?  We invite you to join our free forum, read some posts... and when you're ready...share your challenges and wisdom."

Leaving AC out of the will

Just an FYI-I saw a few 'will' topics and just thought I would share what my lawyer told me ( in case someone does not know this). If you want to 'exclude' a child from your will you should actually include them but only give a insignificant amount, like $100.00. That way it is clear that you do not want them to have a portion of the bulk of the estate. By not mentioning them at all, it can be contested that you forgot to include them (the senile accusation), or it was a clerical error.


That's very interesting to me - I'm considering leaving my estate to medical research and something to my niece and nephews.  Thank you for the info.  I'll be sure to leave a "something" to my son.
