Helping Your Adult Children through Your Divorce in Virginia

Posted on May 30, 2012 by Hofheimer Family Law

Adult children of parents going through a divorce in Virginia may be overlooked in the proceedings. They, in fact, can be some of the most seriously affected. Talking with your Virginia Beach divorce lawyer about the best way to protect the future of your adult children is a point not to be missed.

Below are 3 ways you can support your adult children through your divorce in Virginia.

  • Financial planning – Think about setting up trust funds. Discuss tax-friendly methods when divvying up other assets, like retirement funds.
  • Long-term care insurance – You and your partner will not be there to take care of each other as you age. This responsibility will fall to your children. Help them take care of you by investing in a good long-term care insurance policy.
  • Family heirlooms – You will not be around forever. It may be best to discuss who will be the inheritor of various family heirlooms or even distribute them now.
