What should you do if you don't want your children to inherit anything?

You may think that you can make a will, disinherit your children and leave your assets to whoever you choose. After all, your assets are yours and you will distribute them as you see fit. However, if you exclude your children, you need to make your reasons very clear as there is a strong chance that your reasons could be overruled. You must clearly explain and demonstrate your reasons why your children have been omitted. Talk to your family, explain in detail so that 'they' clearly understand. There are others ways of dealing with this subject, best advice is to speak to a solicitor

When a person passes away who gets his property and belongings?

It depends on whether or not they make a will. If you make a will, you leave your belongings to whoever you want to. If not, usually the next of kin will get everything. That would be a spouse or children, or if the person has neither of these, the closest living relative.

Can I get a copy of my dead mothers will?

If she indeed made a will and the will was submitted for probate (the legal settlement/distribution) of her estate, the will will now be a public document, and you may request a copy of it (for a fee) from your county's public records office.

If this legal process has not happened then you need to find out who dealt with the estate (acted as executor) and ask them.

When is a will determining distribution of estate read to survivors?

Whether or not a will is "read" to the heirs and beneficiaries varies by the custom of the country and state. Here in the United States, the custom of getting everyone together and reading the will to them is no longer followed (unless the Decedent placed special instructions in the will for this to be done.) Although, sometimes the attorney for the executor will meet with the family and describe the probate process and the will.

What is important, at least in California, is that the holder of the original will lodge it with the court within 30 days of the date of death. (Lodge means to file with the court, but without starting an action.) This protects the will from loss. Failure to do this step can result in damages assessed against the holder of the original will (if, for example, an heir losses out on his or her inheritance.)

For more information and probate, estate. and wills, take a look at the offerings in your local law library. Or, check you local county bar association for a lawyer referral service or with a local probate attorney.

What happens to dad's Will if I prove mom is being unfaithful?

Nothing happens to a person's Will if they find their spouse has been unfaithful. Further steps must be taken to make changes to the Will.

A person can write a new Will but you cannot disinherit your spouse in most states. A spouse is legally entitled to a portion of your estate. Divorce changes the situation. First, a Will written prior to a divorce will become null regarding the ex-spouse unless the Will stated the gift was intended to take effect even in the case of a divorce. A person who has ended a marriage by divorce has the right to write a new Will.
