Hi everyone today’s guest is Eve Bouchard an attorney practicing in Winter Park, Florida.
EVE BOUCHARD: how you doing today? Fantastic
MARK THUSH: How are you! I’m great Eve and thank you very much for joining us. Hey listen – Today’s question is from Lou in Orlando and he asks “I’m recently divorced and in the event of my untimely death, how can I pass my assets to my minor children without my ex-spouse getting control of the assets?”
That’s a pretty lengthy question but let me ask you this Eve, is a trust an option?
EVE BOUCHARD: A trust can be an option. One of the reasons I say this is because you can select an individual that you trust to manage the assets for the children’s benefit rather than the benefit of your ex-spouse.
MARK THUSH: Is a will an option?
EVE BOUCHARD: A will is not something I would necessary recommend to my clients facing a situation where they could not trust their ex-spouse. There are limitations on what a basic will can achieve when it comes to controlling and protecting your assets.
MARK THUSH: Ok well thank you Eve Bouchard from Winter Park, Florida. Thanks for coming on our show today.
Thank you Mark!
