No I have not. I don't know if this is even possible.

Lawyer's Assistant: Family law varies by state. What state are you in?

Arizona

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I am 65 yrs old, my daughter is 45. I am in fair health, her don't speak much, unless she has something rude hurtful, disrespectful to me. As much as I love her, I will give her what she wished. That I was never her much mother, I ws worthless drunk. which I am not.

I am very sorry to hear this. There is no legal process for terminating the parent child relationship once the child becomes an adult. The parent can disinherit the adult with a will or trust but nothing is available to terminate the relationship from a legal perspective.

I ant afford the call right now, sorry.
Family Lawyer: LegalGems, Lawyer replied 8 months ago
No it is rather simple. One need only draft a will to that effect. It is best to hire an attorney to ensure the will is valid and proper otherwise the will would be thrown out and assets would go to next of kin under the laws of intestate succession. So for example to a child.A will is private until a person passes so there is no obligation to disclose it.
