Can Adopted Children in the USA be disinherited

Resolved Question:

Can Adopted Children in the USA be disinherited?

Thank you for your question.

Simply put, yes. Very few states require that the parent leave something for their children in the will instrument, and a savvy attorney can provide you with some options as to how to properly disinherit without invalidating the wil.

Hope that helps.
