Setting up a trust fund for children or grandchildren

It’s understandable that parents or grandparents want to be sure their loved ones’ needs are taken care of after they pass on. A common way for Fort Myers residents to leave an inheritance for their heirs is by setting up a trust fund. There are many ways that trusts can be beneficial to recipients. Contrary to popular belief, a family does not have to be wealthy to set up a trust. Trusts can be especially useful if the grantors would like to be sure their children or grandchildren are left with an inheritance but do not misuse the funds.
