Good afternoon. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.You have no legal obligation to leave anything to your brother, his children, grandchildren, etc.If the will is admitted to probate then only the people in the will would receive their bequest. If not mentioned, the children get nothing. You do not have to say anything. You can state that you intetionally make no provision for his children and that if he does not survive you, his bequest should go to someone else.
