Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Good morning. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
There is not a legal obligation to leave your children any part of your estate and you are free to leave the entire estate to any, all or none of your children.
There is no general legal right which wold entitle a disinherited child to be given information about the value of the estate.
Though, all they need to do is review the court file, which is a public record, and see the filed inventory of the estate to get an idea as to its value.
Of course. You are free to give away your property to anyone you wish. Once it is gifted it will no longer be part of your estate and it is not covered in the will.
