Protecting John and Jill's children

The challenge

John and Jill have three adult children; Leo, Joey and Charlie.

Leo is recently separated and is starting the divorce process. He is living in rented accommodation and is planning to purchase a property again once the divorce is finalised.

Charlie is severely disabled and lives in full-time care overseen by social services.

John and Jill are aware that should they die without a Will then their assets will pass to their children in equal shares.

However, this will leave their vulnerable children in a situation whereby Charlie will not only lose his access to means-tested benefits but the lawyers handling the divorce for Leo could take his inheritance into consideration as part of the divorce settlement.

The solution

We advised that a Bloodline Planning Trust to ensure that the assets were protected would be the best solution for all parties.

The results

Charlie will not lose access to means-tested benefits and Leo’s inheritance would not be subject to his divorce settlement.
