When a loved one dies and leaves behind an inheritance, this can become an incredibly complicated matter-and you don’t want to try and handle it alone. When a family business or significant asset is being transferred from a parent to an adult child, our family lawyers can help to ensure that this happens as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
Families are usually not aware of the fact that a family home or company can be lost if the child’s marriage breaks up. But a properly-drafted contract within the marriage can ensure that this asset not only stays within the family, but also helps to save the child a great deal of time, stress and energy in the event of a divorce.
When the family law experts at Francis Lawyers take up your inheritance protection case, we will equip the parents with all of the information and tools necessary to understand what a legally-binding contract is, how to address marriage contracts with their adult child, and what their responsibilities are as the parents.
