Parental Rights & Obligations

questions & answers

Question: My son is supposed to receive money when he is 18 from my brothers passing. Is there a way I can make it that he doesn't get it till he turns 25 and has a high school diploma due to him not being mature and dropping out of school and just relying on this money?

Answer: Changes to the will can be made before the passing but after the person has passed away the document becomes final and whatever the conditions are which are set out in the will are final. Now, with that being said, I would recommend you speak with an attorney who has experience with estate planning.
