Simple Per Capita Estate Planning Distributions

estate planning attorney Ann Arbor

Per capita is a Latin phrase that translates to “by head.”
  This equalizes the shares per designated class.  

In this method of distribution, each child receives a share, and the remaining shares are divided equally among the surviving descendants of the deceased child(ren), within each generation.  

Using the previous example, Child 2 would receive a one third share of the estate, then the remaining third share of Child 1 and Child 3, or two thirds of the  total estate, would be divided equally between the grandchildren, giving each grandchild an equal 2/15 share of the estate.  

Discuss how the different distribution methods can affect distribution of your estate with your estate planning attorney.
