“How can I be sure that my kids don’t lose their inheritance to one of the predators at the court house every business day seeking those minors turning 18 and due to receive an inheritance?”
Any time you create a Will and it is filed with the governing agency, it then becomes public record. (See this link to view Anna Nicole Smith’s Last Will & Testament).
First of all, you need to establish a Trust because it ensures that everything remains private a confidential.
Also, you want to ensure that your kids don’t receive everything at age 18. A lot of children squander their new-found wealth and aren’t equipped to make sound financial decisions that would protect their inheritance for their future.
Third, you can opt to ensure that the assets you leave for your loved ones won’t be lost or taken away by creditors, bankruptcy, or failed marriages.
