Protecting Your Children’s Legacy
Every family’s estate planning needs and goals are different. These differences call for documentation specifically tailored to your situation, and those who will survive you.
One method for protecting your legacy is called wealth reception planning. This strategy ensures that your children receive an inheritance, but one that isn’t thrown at them all at once. It is delivered in the most constructive way possible, emphasizing responsibility for stewardship of those funds.
It could be that an heir needs to have more maturity, education, and wisdom, to utilize an inheritance appropriately. You may want to make sure that he or she has a certain amount of training or education, or life lessons and accomplishments to their credit before they receive what you have left them.
We also recommend lifetime protective trust as a means of protecting your legacy. The recipient is the trustee of the trust, in charge of managing assets in accordance with the trust’s rules. He or she has significant control over the trust, but not so much control that estate administration benefits are lost.
