This is a person who depends on you for financial purposes.  This is usually a spouse, ex-spouse or a child.

It is important when writing a will that you consider any dependants and include them in the will.  If you have a reason why you are leaving someone out of the will it is important to mention this in the will.  You can explain the reason in the will or in additional document known as a Letter of Wishes.  If you do not give consideration to someone and they believe they should be included they may have a case to contest the will.  This is likely to cause complications for your loved ones and may make it harder for them to deal with losing you if they have to deal with an ongoing court battle.
