I have been talking to a dear friend about wills, ect... and much to my surprise she does not have one. I was very shocked that she wants to cut her daughter and two grandchildren out of her will (when she makes it). There is major problems with her family and they have treated her so bad to the point where it can't get worse. So she was asking if she made a will and cut them out can they somehow contest it? I of course tell her the lawyer will know. I was under the impression that she might leave something small to each of them and add if they contest they get nothing. I thought I read something about doing this years ago. For those who do not have wills, make one....I am shocked at how many older people with businesses and kids don't have wills.
