Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Good afternoon. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
If you leave property directly to your wife, there is no way to force her to take care of anyone, but you could create a testamentary trust in the will which could direct support in the manner you choose.
That would require a professional estate planing attorney to set up. You can fund it with life insurance if you wish, but there are different types of vehicles for setting it up.
If you need assistance finding local counsel try Martindale Hubble (site rules prohibit us from referring specific attorneys) . Many attorneys themselves use this site to locate attorneys outside their jurisdiction or expertise:
http://www.martindale.com/Find-Lawyers-and-Law-Firms.aspxIt is a huge worldwide database searchable by location and specialty. The attorneys are all peer rated. So, they represent the top of the profession.
If you have no further questions, and have not yet done so, please remember to leave a favorable rating (Excellent or Good) so that I am credited by JustAnswer for assisting you. A bonus is not required, but is always appreciated.
