What's a Contingent Trust?


A contingent trust is a written agreement directing how a person's estate should be managed and distributed in the event of a certain occurrence. In most cases, a contingent trust is used to address the possibility that your spouse does not survive you and you have young children. You may shudder to think how your young children might use their inheritance. There are plenty of examples of a child inheriting property and quickly expending it on fast cars and a fast lifestyle. Also, if your child is a minor, it is likely that his inheritance would require a guardianship. This means that the Court would decide who to appoint as guardian and the whole matter would be public record. The guardianship would terminate at the age of majority (18 years) and the money released to the child. The contingent trust is used to not only select a trustee of your choosing, but to instruct when your children should receive their inheritance. Frequently, the trust provides for distributions at different ages. For example, you may decide to distribute 25% of the trust at age 30, 25% at age 35, and the remainder at age 40. The trustee would have discretion to distribute or expend money on your child's behalf.

Howdy! Quick question that's completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when viewing from my apple iphone. I'm trying to find a theme or plugin that might be
able to fix this issue. If you have any recommendations,

First of all I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Many thanks!
