Relatives who are not listed in a will may not automatically inherit from the estate. In most cases, the distribution of assets will follow the instructions provided in the will. If a relative is not mentioned as a beneficiary or heir in the will, they may not have a legal right to inherit.

However, it’s important to note that laws regarding inheritance can vary depending on the jurisdiction and applicable laws. In some cases, there may be provisions in the law that entitle certain relatives to a share of the estate, even if they are not explicitly named in the will. These provisions are generally based on familial relationships and are often referred to as “intestate succession” laws.

If you have concerns about relatives who are not listed in a will or if you believe that they may have a rightful claim to the estate, it’s advisable to consult with an attorney who specializes in estate planning and probate law. They can provide guidance based on the specific laws in your jurisdiction and help ensure that the estate is distributed in accordance with the applicable legal requirements.
