Will Making – Myth 2 – If a leave a small gift to a child I can leave them out of my Will

by Andrew Lind on 27 June, 12

Not so.

As a Will Maker you have “testamentary freedom” but also “testamentary responsibility” to make “adequate provision” for those who the law recognises would have a reasonable expectation of benefiting from your estate.

You will need to help of a lawyer experienced in preparing Wills to advise you about these risks in your specific circumstances. There is no “one size fits all” but an experienced Will making lawyer will be able to quickly assess if there is any real risk in your circumstances and recommend strategies to manage that risk.
