I am seriously thinking about giving my two kids the biggest part of their inheritance in the near future. I'm not splitting up the farm or anything like that but I am thinking about giving each kid a large check of 6 figures. That way, when I kick the bucket, this won't be something that may come up in an argument. I haven't talked to my lawyer about it yet but do you think this would be a wise thing to do? The way I see it, if I go ahead and give it to them, they won't be hounding the wife after I'm gone or be overly concerned about what remains in the estate. Basically, everything will go to the wife except for some cash to the kids and a few personal things I specifically want each kid to have. With this out of the way, I'm thinking no hastles. What are your thoughts? I have a will that pretty much spells everything out but you know the shit that comes about when you croak. Thoughts?
