Giving to Other People
Even if you have children or grandchildren, you may wish to put friends or more distant relatives in your will. You can do this, of course, but if such gifts are significant your children or other family members may dispute such gifts after you pass away. They may even go to court.
If your will gives significant gifts to individuals who are not close family members, you should see an attorney to make sure your will includes the language it needs to to make sure your wishes are actually carried out.
