I’m often asked by clients if they have to leave all their money to their kids or are they legally allowed to leave some money elsewhere. The law in Israel is that you have the right to leave your assets/money to whomever you choose. This is not to say a family member won’t be able to challenge your will, especially if they were left out entirely, without explanation. There are challenges with the dynamics of a second family (with kids from both) or a special-needs child who may require support payments. It’s imperative that you consult an experienced attorney for things to go according to your wishes after you pass away.
