Are grandchidren considered natural heirs at law for making gifts under a trust?
1 Answer from Attorneys
Yes, but that fact alone will not get anything to them if you die; you will need to add them as beneficiaries or successor trustees for that to happen. Otherwise, your survivors may be forced to go through an expensive and slow moving probate proceeding before they get paid.
