It Doesn’t Pay to Ignore Your Father

Q. I am a widower but have barely spoken with one of my two children, my son, for many years. I want to cut him entirely out of my Will and leave him nothing, but my neighbor says I can’t do that and have to leave him half. (1) Is that true? (2) Do I have to give any reason for cutting out my son? (3) Can I just leave everything to my daughter?

A. (1) Nope. (2) Nope. (3) Yep. Florida does not have forced heirship where you are required to leave something to another person (unless you have a written agreement to do so, of course).
