MONEY Estate Planning

Should My Daughter Who’s Still in School Get First Dibs on My Estate?

Did you ever want to be a personal-finance advice columnist? Well, here’s your chance.

In MONEY’s “Readers to the Rescue” department, we publish questions from readers seeking help with sticky financial situations, along with advice from other readers on how to solve those problems. Here’s our latest reader question:

We have an older daughter who is married, well-established, and financially secure. I have another daughter who is still in college and will be for at least 5 more years. Is it alright to divide our estate in her favor while she’s in school, then correct it in the future when she has established herself?”

What advice would you give? Fill out the form below and tell us about it. We’ll publish selected reader advice in an upcoming issue. (Your answer may be edited for length and clarity.)

Thank you!
