Divorce Protection for Your Beneficiaries
Most of our clients who are parents worry about unexpected occurrences that may happen in the life of their children or beneficiaries in the future. For example, parents are concerned about protecting their children’s inheritance from events such as divorce, creditors, lawsuits, business failing, bankruptcy, and spending habits of a child or spouse of a child. No parents want the inheritance they intend to leave for their children or other loved ones to be within the reach and use of their sons-in-law or daughters-in-law, especially if they are separated from the children and are in the process of divorce. Furthermore, no parents want creditors of their children to be able to reach the children’s inheritance.
