Divorce experts say Melinda Gates wants to change the terms of her 3 children’s inheritance. Clues regarding his intention would be present in the divorce petition. A situation that contradicts the statement of Bill Gates who says that he would leave only $ 10 million to each of his children. When filing for divorce, Melinda took a rather unusual step. Indeed, she appointed lawyers specializing in trusts and estates as representatives in her application.
“Melinda has well-known trust and estate law lawyers involved in the case,” said Harriet Newman Cohen and Martha Cohen Stine, divorce lawyers. “It is very unusual for the names of lawyers specializing in trust and estate law to appear in a divorce petition,” they add.
“Plans that diverge from those of Bill Gates”
In an interview with Page Six, the duo Harriet Newman Cohen and Martha Cohen Stine confide that Melinda’s plans may go against Bill’s. Remember that this duo is not involved in the divorce of the Gates. Bill had stated that his children would receive only a tiny fraction of his immense fortune. “I really think that leaving large sums of money for his children is not a favor for them”, he had confided before adding “Some people do not agree with this, but Melinda and I are let’s feel good about it “.
“Bill Gates proudly announced to the world that he is leaving $ 10 million for each of his three children, and that the rest of the billions will be left to charity … now that Melinda is in control – maybe she wanted to leave more to her children than $ 10 million each. Maybe she disagreed, “Newman Cohen said on the subject. She also adds that given the amount left to the children, this would be tantamount to disinheriting them.
