Hello,I will do my best to help you with this.So, are you looking to set up a trust to take decisions and make payments to your son as and when necessary?
Sorry I do not wish to continue, as a pensioner it is to expensive!
No problem, Richard. It is of course your choice whether to accept an answer or not. My advice to you is that you need to see a solicitor specialising in trusts and probate matters. Ask that a discretionary trust be set up, which will provide for your sons needs when you pass away. It will cost you in the region of £500 to get this work done. Best wishesJohn
