Favouritism

Can't Take It with You Episode 2 of 6

Sir Gerry Robinson helps two families torn over what to write in their wills.

Mother of five Brenda wants to leave more to youngest daughter Kerrie to make up for childcare she has given her other daughters. But husband Robert is terrified that Brenda's plan could cause a rift between the five girls they have always treated equally.

When Trevor's parents died they left him 80 per cent of their estate, while half-sister Pat got just 20 per cent. Now history seems to be repeating itself: Trevor's desire to pass money back to Pat's family is complicated by his plan to show favouritism to just one of his nieces.

Sir Gerry is assisted by top lawyer, Sue Medder, who sets out the legal options in each case, and writes the final wills. And Sir Gerry gets all the family involved in the debate, because keeping problems secret is no way to solve them.

Deciding who gets what in a will can be one of the toughest choices anyone can have to make. But making no decisions at all and dying without a will, can cause rifts that tear families apart.
