Simple things to keep your kids from fighting about your estate

As a parent, the last thing that you want is for your children to fight over your will when you die. When you pass, you want your children to be there for one another, and to lean on one another. You don't want them to be arguing over your assets and everything that you have left behind.

When children want to change the custody plan

Separated parents in Virginia may go through challenging times when their children say they want to change the custody arrangement. There are several reasons why a kid would make these requests. Examples range from serious situations like abuse or neglect to simply wanting to pursue a better educational opportunity. It is a big decision, and there are many issues for parents to consider before making a major change to how a family handles custody.

Trusts and estate plans

When developing their estate plans, Virginia residents can structure a trust so that it can be used to achieve their specific goals. It can be also structured to simultaneously give the trustee the tools needed to achieve those goals while dealing with ongoing economic and investment factors. In order to properly structure their trust, individuals have to decide if they will fund it straightaway, over a certain period of time or upon their death.

Supervised visitations mandated by the court

In Virginia and across the United States, divorced parents may need to undergo parental supervision while visiting their children. A judge may order supervised parental visitations if the parent has a prior history of substance abuse or alcoholism. A court may also order parental supervision if the parent has a history of physical abuse. Although the court wants to give a child the chance to visit with their parent, a judge also wants to make sure the child is safe.
