Helping You Choose the Children's Trust You Need for a Child You Care About

Ms. Nolan works closely with her clients to help them make sound decisions regarding their finances as they relate to estate planning. Trusts are viable estate planning tools that can help safeguard your assets and provide for your children and grandchildren.

You can establish a children's trust that goes into effect upon your death. Or, you can establish a trust that goes into effect once the child reaches a certain age. You can name whoever you want as trustee. For example, you may name the bank where the money is held to serve as the trustee. Additionally, you can designate what the money in trust can be used to pay for — education, health care and general welfare of the child, for example.

2503(c) Minor's Trust

A section 2503(c) minor's trust is a common trust that grandparents, parents and other relatives establish for children and grandchildren. This type of trust is funded when it is established, and the money is held in trust until the child turns 21.

Special Needs Trusts

Ms. Nolan also helps people establish trusts for children with special needs. By establishing a third-party special needs trust, you can leave assets to your child without sacrificing eligibility for benefits.
