Creating Your Estate Plan With Minors.
Every parent wants to make sure their children are provided for in the event something happens to them. It’s important to have an estate plan in place to ensure your children are protected in the event a tragedy occurs. Here at DAL Law Firm, we have the knowledge and experience to provide the best options possible for you and your family.
Children often inherit money, real estate, stocks, and other investments from their parents or grandparents. However, if there is no estate plan in place, in the event the parents pass away while the children are still minors, both the guardianship and probate courts will become involved.
There are a number of options available to complete your estate plan and provide for minors. One option is to include a trust for minor children in your will. The person who you name as Personal Representative in your will could also act as the trustee of the minor’s trust to control the distribution of your assets. Another option is to create a Revocable Living Trust. When you have a Revocable Trust in place, you transfer any assets you own into your trust, and after your passing, your successor trustee will administer your assets according to your trust. With a Revocable Living Trust, probate can be avoided.
We know it’s not easy to think about what would happen to your children if something devastating occurred but having the proper estate plan in place can ease your worries.
