Estranged Children?

by Dennis Gardener

Life as a willwriter is always varied.

I've recently been helping clients who have the awful situation of estranged children, a very common occurrence for a whole host of reasons. I always am happy to listen and then give advice.

The parents are concerned that as both children have a drug dependency any money left to them would be used for illegal substances, something the parents were very concerned about.

They had heard that under "legal rights" you couldn't cut your children out. Quite right, but you can put it in a discretionary trust to make sure that money can be issued by trustees to look after their basic living needs etc. and still stop the kids from getting their hands on the money.

Well three cups of tea later we managed to sort everything out to satisfy the clients' wishes so as they said they can sleep easier in their beds and know they 'have done the right thing'.

Never two cases the same and keeps the little grey cells working!
