Can a parent leave certain children out of their will?

02/01/2007 - Wills and Estates - State: MS #612

Full Question:

I have 4 children, do I have to leave all of them something in my will or is it legal to leave 3 of them something and not the fourth without there being a battle?

Answer:

You have the right in Mississippi to leave your property to your Children, or some of your Children, or none of your Children. This does not mean that this will avoid a battle on other grounds, but the fact that you did not leave property to one child does not invalidate your Will.
