Provision of will
in Deaths, funerals & probate

My husband and I are intending updating our will. Our will should be straight forward, 2 children both married with two children each. ( 4 grandchildren). Unfortunately my daughter is married to a very controlling man who controls everything in her life including her finances. Our worry is if my daughter inherits half of our estate she will not benefit from the money. Is there anyway we could word our will where the money could be held for her to use as long as she is no longer with him.
We have no desire to leave the money to our daughter’s children as my daughter would need the money in the likely event of divorce.
Also what is the likelihood of my son in law and daughter contesting this arrangement?
