My ex is refusing to give me ss# so I can put my boys in my will?


I now have a living will and have requested at least 5 times to my ex wife’s attorney my boys ss# I am not allowed to talk to my ex and still have not gotten them what can I do?


A living will is a document which lays out your end of life care. A last will and testament is a document which directs how you wish your assets to pass to beneficiaries after your death. Neither of these documents require social security numbers. Simply stating your relationship and the name is good enough.  In fact, after your death, your will is filed at the probate court, which is now open to the public.  Any person can request to read your will.  You don’t want your sons’ socials listed because now you have opened them up to identity theft.
