It does not. It means you may be a beneficiary and an interested party - usually a relative.

Ok. So basically because I am a living family member I could contest the Will but it doesn't mean I am named in the Will - correct?
Precisely. You want to see the will and then decide if you are named and if there is basis to contest such as fraud or lack of mental capacity!Please let me know if the reply is acceptable by responding “yes” or “acceptable”

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
