Deviate from the legal regulation
You can deviate from the statutory regulation by drawing up a will. For example, you can appoint a good friend as an heir. You can also appoint an executor to carry out your will. Do you have certain items or amounts of money that you would like to leave to a special family member or organization? For example, the antique cupboard on your cousin, your share package on your business partner or a sum of money on charity? You also record that in your will. This is called a legacy. Do you have items with emotional value? You can often leave that to someone with a codicil.
Do you find it important that an heir may only have the inheritance at his disposal from a certain age? Then you can include a so-called administrator in your will. This person manages, up to the age determined by you, the assets that the heir inherits from you. Only in consultation with the administrator and with his permission can your heir get the inheritance.
Arrange custody by will
In your will you can also arrange who will receive custody of your minor children, in case you are no longer there. You can arrange a large number of things. Like the finances of the children, whether they have to stay together, whether they have to live with the guardian and much more. The guardian exercises the authority over the minor children and also has the power over the children. In testament you can determine that someone other than the guardian will be in office or that the guardian will also rule until a certain age as soon as the children reach the age of majority.
Exclude family members from your estate (disinherit)
Do you not want your partner or children to share in your estate? Then you can disgrace them in your will. Do you want to protect your children in case of divorce? Then by including an exclusion clause in your will you can ensure that a departing partner of your child is not entitled to your estate.
