So here all you have to do is a will with a trust in it.The trustee who you name would hold funds in trust until child is say 21 years old.That would protect his assets until he is of age here from parents.

Parents here still have parental rights but they could not access funds , trustee has control.You can name another friend, relative, or lawyer to act as trustee of the funds.

I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.Thanks

If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.
