There is no particular minimum dollar amount to accomplish this. You can simply say something like, "To my son, John Q. Smith, I leave nothing upon my death." It is recommended that you name the individual, specifically, so he cannot later claim he is what is called a "pretermitted heir," or someone you simply forgot and mistakenly disinherited on the day you drafted your will. Some traditionalists say to leave a sum certain - such as a dollar - to preclude them complaining they got nothing at all.
