How can I prevent my children’s future ex-spouses from getting any of their inheritance?

Rather than make bequests to children outright, distributions can and should be made in trust to ones beneficiaries in order to provide protection from divorce, creditors and other special circumstances. If distributions are made outright, the money belongs directly to the beneficiary who receives it and is subject to his / her existing and future creditors. A distribution in trust can be designed with certain clauses and distribution requirements so that an intended beneficiary is the only one who benefits from their inheritance.
