Provide money to your kids, without losing it if they get divorced.

You want to provide your kids with financial support to take their next step in life.

But you’re concerned that if you help them out, and they split up with their partner, half of your cash will walk out the door.

Andreyev Lawyers will help you provide financial support to your children in a protected way.

You can then proudly stand back and watch your kids move forward with confidence.

Help your children get ahead.

Protect your wealth from unjust claims.

Ensure your family’s long term financial security.

These days it’s really hard for people to meet their everyday needs, let alone get ahead.

You want to use some of your surplus wealth to help your children take their next step in life. Whether it be buying a home, starting a business, or getting more educated.

But you also don’t want them to blow it, lose it to a creditor, or end up giving half away to a former partner.

We will help you document your financial support to your children as a secured advance, so if something goes wrong, you can step in and protect it.

 

Will your children be able to afford anything like the lifestyle that you now take for granted?

You’re the parents of young adult children.

You have worked hard and it has paid off. You’re financially comfortable. Your kids, on the other hand, are facing insurmountable obstacles to affording even the basics of a middle-class life.

You want to help them out by giving them some money, but you’re concerned that they will either fritter the funds, or someone else will end up with your wealth. Will a third-party creditor wipe them out? If they split up with their partner, will they just end up back where they started?

If you just give the money to your children, then chances are the funds will be wasted or lost, and won’t have the long-term impact that you intend.

Leaving things to chance is not an option.

You want to provide some financial assistance to your children, but you’re concerned that it will be wasted or lost to some third-party claim.

If you simply gift money to your children, then anyone with a current or future claim against your child will easily be able to take those funds.

The result is that neither you nor your child will have the benefit of your hard-earned wealth.

 

How we will help

Rather than simply ‘gifting’ them the funds, and exposing the money to third-party claims, we will document your support in the form of a secured loan.

If something goes wrong in your child’s life, you will be able to step in and protect that wealth from third-party claims. When the risk has passed, you can advance the funds again to your child to put them back on their feet.

With your financial support, your children will be able to take their next step in life. With our documentation in place, you will be able to confidently sit back, relax, and watch them thrive.

​​’Equity Loans’, a loan with upside

More than ever, young people are relying on the ‘bank of Mum and Dad’ to get a leg-up. Whether it’s to break into the property market or utilise some initial capital to get their new business off the ground, we are seeing more and more of our clients give (and receive!) loans from their parents. 
A question we get asked often by the ‘lender’ in this scenario is whether it is possible for a loan to be advanced without the lender receiving periodic interest repayments, and instead get a share of the ‘upside’ (gain) when the financed asset is sold.
