Most of the clients that I represent have children. The majority have more than one child. While in some families, it is “obvious” who is going to be the successor trustee/executor, that is not always the case.
There are some families wherein it is especially difficult for the parents to select one child because they feel that they will be hurting the feelings of the other child. It seems to happen most when there are two children (as opposed to three or more) that clients will want to make both children co-trustees/co-executors.
