My parents have a lot of money, and they have a lot of property located around our country town. When they grew older, they told my siblings and I that they wanted to give some of it to us before they pass away one day in the future. I have wanted my own small farm, so that made me really happy. They had to get a living trust attorney in Orange County to get all the paperwork straightened out since the property is in their trust. Dad says that they needed to do things the right way so that my siblings and I would not fight over property one day when they passed away. It’s scary to think that could ever even happen with my brothers and sisters.
My parents are old enough that they have seen quite a number of our relatives and friends pass away over the years. They have seen siblings fight over what they think they should get. It breaks apart families and really tears people apart.
