Alas, my son shares no love for, heat, dust, dirt, and low wages. I'm anticipating a Boston lawyer... (4.0, Ivy league, full academic scholarship, editor of law review)
I formed a C corporation a few years ago. The Corp leases the hard assets from me and my former 'foreman' became Chief Operating Officer. When I die my significant other and my son will inherit the stock. No fuss, no muss, no fighting. The hard assets will go into trust to benefit my significant other(if she's still holding out on getting hitched), my son, and my cats. It really doesn't matter to me what they do with the stuff, its just stuff and I'll be dead and won't care. I see my obligation right now is for those I love to be provided for.
