Question submitted 11/10/2010:
Hi can I get out of a will? My parents ranch is estimated at 3 million. There are 5 brothers who will inherit this as a whole. Not indvidually. If my parents won't take me off can I say I don't want any of it when the time comes? I am also an executor.
Answer from Kathleen Carter of Carter & Valle Law Firm:
If you don't want to be a beneficiary at the time the will is probated, you can file a disclaimer of interest. If your parents will not take you out of the will now, that is up to them. They can change their will at any time before death, so the will at that time may be different. Otherwise, you must wait until the will is probated.
