Asset Protection Trust

The problem is well known : most people wish to pass on an inheritance to their families and many children "expect" to receive the proceeds of their parent's  home on the second death.

Sideways dis- inheritance is a major concern for couples who wish to pass their assets on to their children on second death. An example of a potential problem would be if the surviving spouse  re-marries and then subsequently divorces  meaning the assets owned by the first spouse (who thought they would go to the children) could be lost in divorce proceedings .Many people arrange the Asset Protection Trusts (APTs) to offer protection from such scenarios.
