Get UK Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
I know absolutely nothing about the probate law of Belgium.
What I can tell you is that every system of law I have ever encountered, including UK law, allows the beneficiaries to agree to vary the dispositions made in a Will or on intestacy where there is no Will.
But only where all the affected beneficiaries agree, so the Belgium son would have to agree or you have a legal fight on your hands.
That could well explain it.
