What is the Best Way to Exclude Children from a Last Will?

When children are to be excluded from a Last Will and Testament, the situation can be handled in one of two ways: 1) they can be listed specifically by name and then excluded; or

2) they can be not listed within a document that contains language that that no other persons except those named are eligible to receive assets from the Will.

Note that Standard Legal’s Last Will and Testament documents are drafted so that any person not specifically listed as a beneficiary within the Will is excluded from inheriting any assets of the Will.
