Reply To: Can I disinherit my child?

Hey Ant,

The short answer is yes, you can disinherit your child or children in most states. Same goes for your grandchildren. One way to do that is by leaving each of them, by name, a nominal gift under your will – such as $10. By doing this, it is crystal clear that you did not wish them to benefit more substantially. However, if you simply don’t leave them anything in your will, you run the risk that they might challenge your will on the basis that you accidentally forgot to include them. So, be sure to name them.

Hope this helps.
