You may have heard these statements from clients: “My kids will be responsible with the money they receive.” “I need to treat everyone equally.” “I don’t want anything complicated.”
Clients will often try to take the easy route with their planning, perhaps because they believe it is the cheapest route. Or, they may believe their kids won’t squander the money. Unfortunately, the wrong provisions can end up costing the family thousands or more and can negatively impact family relationships.
Join ElderCounsel’s Brian Albee and special guest Jonathan Mintz for an in-depth look at some of the common mistakes made by seniors (and their attorneys) when drafting provisions for a child’s inheritance, and how to guide clients to better decisions.
