Our Grandchildren Can Be Priceless - How Much Will Our Help Matter?
Posted on Jan. 5, 2016

GrandsWhen they are tiny newborns, they are cute and cuddly – and innocent and vulnerable.

Then they toddle around and sometimes they say the most amazing things – and sometimes they break a precious vase.

As adolescents, we wonder if they’ll make the right choices – educational, vocational, family and behavioral – and we even worry about it. We made some mistakes. So will they, but we so much want to help them not make BIG mistakes.

When A Child "Borrows" Money From The Parents
Posted on Aug. 25, 2014

How Will That Affect The Rest Of The Family If It Is Not Paid Back? Document Your Intentions.

Parents give or lend money to children for many reasons: to buy a first home, to start a new business, or to help them with a debt or other financial liability that they can’t seem to handle themselves. It is important to consider the impact that the loan or gift will have on the rest of the family when you, the lender, have passed away. Will the family view it as a debt requiring repayment, as a gift to be deducted from the recipient’s inheritance, or as a gift made in addition to the recipient’s inheritance. Documenting your intentions will be very beneficial to family unity and harmony.

About Randy


I help clients prepare for their unexpected death or disability. Using legal documents such as Wills, Trusts, Power of Attorney, LLCs and more, we can ensure that your hard-earned assets go to the right people, at the right time, and in the right way–and are managed by someone who is competent, skilled and trustworthy.

I also help clients identify their non-monetary legacy (values, wisdom, principles, beliefs, life experiences, family name and a commitment to certain charitable causes) and how to effectively pass that legacy on to family and others.

Take time to consider the value of your life to others. Don't miss opportunities to leave a greater legacy than just money.
