Protecting Your Children and Heirs from Divorce and Litigation


Protecting Children and Heirs from Divorce and Litigation

Most people want to leave a certain amount of their assets to their children and their grandchildren when they pass away. However, your surviving spouse, children, grandchildren, and other heirs could have their inheritance assets subject to claims that may prevent them from inheriting the wealth that you worked so hard to accumulate. The claims could include divorce, lawsuit judgments, creditor claims, business claims, and other lawsuits. Usually, through no fault of their own, many families unknowingly take the risk that their children’s inheritance will be substantially reduced by this type of carelessness.

As many people already know, as has been reported in the media for years, over 50% of all marriages end in divorce. In addition, approximately 15% of people will only sign a prenuptial agreement if they are asked to do so. Therefore, if you are planning an estate with a will or a trust, or if you are expecting an inheritance, it is important to make sure that you and your heirs are protected from divorce and creditor risks.

Do you ever worry that one of your heirs or adult children may use their inheritance to buy a home, a second vacation, or other assets in joint names with their spouse only to have that asset seized in a divorce? Did you know that this can be avoided through the use of trusts and irrevocable trusts under a will?

In fact, there are many legal strategies and techniques that can be used to protect your adult children, grandchildren, and other heirs from judgments, divorce claims, creditor claims, and a variety of other claims against the estate.
