“As a trust attorney in estate planning in Sacramento, I have helped many parents create a special needs trust for their disabled children. One crucial factor of this kind of trust is naming the trustee. Ideally, the trustee should be someone whom your disabled child is already acquainted with, like your spouse, a sibling, a relative, or a family friend. The trustee you name should also have a willingness to serve the needs of the child when you are gone. If the trustee is well-versed in financial management, this would be very helpful as well.
Estate planning may not be easy to undertake but it can be absolutely essential especially if children with special needs are involved. The attorneys at Generations have the knowledge and experience to make sure your child is taken care of when you are gone. Knowing that your special needs child will be responsibly looked after even in your absence can be invaluable to putting your mind at ease about that child’s future.”
