Areas of Law / General Legal Advice

My husband was left a ring by his father. The intention was for it to be passed down through the male line of the family, and since we had no grandchildren at the time the only boy in the family was a nephew. We now have a grandson whom we would like to give the ring to, but we wanted to know our legal position on this in case it causes a family rift.

If you have already given the ring to the nephew in all probability he will be entitled to keep it. Generally speaking if you give something away you’re not entitled to ask for it back, even if it’s an heirloom. I think you will have to settle this problem by calling a family conference.
