Disinheriting Your Children, Heirs, and Next of Kin
Can you disinherit your children, your adult children, your heirs, your next of kin? If you’re a child, an adult child, or an heir of a mother, father, aunt or uncle in Florida, are you entitled to an inheritance? The truth is, in Florida, somebody can leave as much wealth to anyone they want as long as they’re competent and know what they’re doing. What does that mean? It means that you and I can disinherit anyone we want generally, except our spouse, unless we signed a prenup, and we can leave our wealth to anyone we want. If we’re a beneficiary or an heir, that’s a different story. We need to be mindful, we’re not entitled to an inheritance, although, depending on what happened, you may be able to get one.
