We all hope our children will grow up, meet someone special, and that individual will be a part of the family forever. But as we all know, marriages can end and sometimes they end badly. As much as we may want to, we CANNOT spare our children the pain inflicted when a marriage ends. But with proper planning, you CAN protect them from losing their inheritance to an ex-spouse in a divorce. And it’s not difficult to do with a good and experienced estate planning attorney.
Your children probably are not thinking of what will happen to their inheritance in the event of their divorce. But the reality is that nearly half of marriages do end in this way.
Trusts are an excellent legal tool for protecting your child’s inheritance in the event of divorce, and they provide other benefits as well such as probate avoidance and creditor protection.
