How do I include future members of a class?
This section applies when class gifts are made in the will. To include future members of class:
- Click the checkbox beside the class for which you wish to include future members. For example, click the "Children" box to include future children in the definition of children in the will.
Note: If you are drafting a will for a young couple who are likely going to have future children, it is a good idea to use a class gift in the "Scenarios" section (instead of naming the current children specifically) and click the box to include future children in the "Provisions" section. That way, any gifts will be divided equally among all children existing at the time of the client's death, not just the children currently alive at the time the will is drafted.
