Woman in China Posts Ad for Stand-In Daughter to Inherit Estate

A wealthy elderly woman in Zhengzhou, Henan Province, has social media buzzing after posting a classified ad in the hopes of finding an adult daughter to keep her company and possibly inherit her fortune.

Do you have wealth to pass on, but no children to leave it to? Let's explore your options, even the unconventional ones.

Most people in that situation have some idea of what they want to do. They have someone else in mind to inherit the assets or they have charitable causes they want to benefit as their legacy.

In China, a woman has decided to go a different route. She has taken out an advertisement for someone to be her adult daughter and to eventually inherit her wealth. The story was reported by Global Times in an article titled "Wealthy doctor posts ad seeking daughter to inherit fortune."

The idea of adopting an adult to be your heir is not new. It used to be somewhat common in ancient times.

However, with modern estate planning in the United States you do not need to make someone your child for them to inherit your assets. You can designate whomever you wish in your estate plan.

If you would like to know how, contact an experienced estate planning attorney. He or she can provide you with the wisdom and experience that comes with having "seen it all" when it comes to estate planning.
