What would you like to do?
Well, you'd have to go around the world to ask that one, but actually, you can't. Unless someone tells you, "Congratulations! You are allowed to legally disown your sibling!!!" That would be a miracle.

Thanks for the feedback!
Can you do anything for an abused sibling even though they have disowned you after you have warned them that the abuse will continue?
The only thing you can do is be there for them and hope they "get smart" and leave the abuser. My mother is in an abusive relationship. She left him and he promised never to …do it again, so she took him back. He hasn't done it since, but he still does all the other things an abuser does except for hit her. Anyway, my entire family refuses to go to her house at all, her boyfriend isn't allowed at anyones house or any family functions. But she is always invited and welcome and we do our best to be there for her when he hurts her emotionally. We are all honest with her, but not mean or anything. I think that may be a way for you to go. Be there for her in anyway you can, but make it clear that you don't like him and don't want anything to do with him. I hope this helps in some way. It is a very hard position to be in. Your sibling is an adult and she has the right to make her own mistakes and choices. All you can do is warn her, refer her to literature, make clear to her that you love her and will always be there for her. But do not become too intrusive and compulsive. In trying to save her from abuse - you are at risk of abusing her yourself!
The closest thing you could do would be to get a restraining order. Because he/she is a bro/sis you can not "disown". disowning refers to taking someone out of your will…. if if you want to. you could do that in addition. but moving away would be the closest thing to "disowning.
There are no laws addressing this.
you yourself can not disown a sibling because it is up to the parents on judgement, but if the older sibling was to become the legal guardian than yes you could disown your si…bling.
You live with it , parents made you , they fed you , they payed your tuition and put a roof over your head. So man up , appreciate them and quit complaining
The laws of intestacy determine who qualifies as next-of-kin in the case of intestate property. If a person wants to "disown" a child or "disinherit" them, he must do so by wi…ll and in the manner provided in the state laws.
Who is legally next of kin in the UK if an individuals parents have died and whose siblings have been disowned?
The will should have a clause in it as where the money goes. The parents could leave the money to their own parents (if alive); their own children; a church or charity.
There is no legally actioniable way to "disown" someone. 'Disown' means to diisavow, or repudiate, someone, or some thing. You may "dis-inherit" someone (e.g.: as from a… will) but you cannot disown them.
Yes -- it's called "emancipation" some states and countries allow it for those over a certain age that can provide for themselves and are smart enough to take care of themselv…es.
No, you will be charged with child abandonment.
No, since disowning is not a legal term.
Disowning a child is not a legal concept, and there are no rules. Commonly, people refer to a parent writing an adult child out of his/her will as disowning a child. In this …case, yes, the parent could write them out and write them back in again as often as they want.
No. If you are a minor you cannot disown your mother. If you are an adult you do not need to disown your mother since you have no responsibility for her. However, if y…ou are an unmarried adult child and own any property or life insurance then you should make certain you write a Will and keep it in a place that will be easily accessible in the case of your demise. If you should die without a Will your mother would be your legal heir at law and would inherit a portion of your property along with your father.
Disowning is not a legal term so discuss with your lawyer what you can do about your will if you don't want to leave him anything. Right now when you are alive you just stay a…way from each other.
What may happen legally to a parent or parents who disown or threaten to disown their child due to their sexual orientation?
Disowning is not a legal term. Once the child is adult it's up to either part whether to have contact or not and that is all legal. When the child is a minor however it would …be child abandonment to kick them out which is illegal and the parents can be charged for it. The parents are obligated to provide for their child until the child is at least 18yo. The CPS will put the child in foster care until he is 18yo and the parents will be charged and pay child support.
You cannot disown your minor children. You must give up custody legally to some other responsible party. You would need to terminate your parental rights to the child.
