Will Outright To Spouse Then Held In Spendthrift Trust (17 Pages)

$ 49.00
Add Items to Cart


This Will leaves all property to the surviving spouse. If there is no surviving spouse, the property is left in trust for a child or children, for a duration of 15 years (There is no “magic” to the 15 years here – this Form can be modified to a different duration of years for the trust to run).  This is an ideal trust for a client who is concerned about a child, grandchild or any other beneficiary, running through their inheritance.

The trustees are authorized to pay income and principal to or for the benefit of the child, but such payments are capped at $15,000 per year. (There is no "magic" to the $15,000 here - this Form can be modified for different annual amounts.)  When the 15 year term is up, the trust property passes outright to the Beneficiary. If the Beneficiary does not survive to inherit, or survives but dies before the 15 years have elapsed, the property passes to the descendants of the testator per stirpes. Article NINTH includes a spendthrift clause.
