Ask Your Own Canada Law Question

Are you asking about how to leave your son his inheritance and ensure that his wife will not share in it if they separate or divorce?

He has a young son

Mainly this is up to your son. So long as he keeps all inherited assets separated from family assets they are not shared as they are exempt from being characterized as family assets unless they are intermingled with family assets.

But your lawyer who drafts the Will will also include a standard provision that makes it clear that even the income derived from any assets are not included in the definition of family assets.

Does that fully answer your question?

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
