Independent of Child as Trustee?

Hi All,

Were getting close to meeting with trust attorney in Florida so trying to better understand and manage the process.

In addition to determining whether a testamentary trust or revocable trust would be better, we are considering simply using an institution like Fidelity, Schwab, etc as trustee - less effort by beneficiaries, more professional approach to investing, ability to more easily spread income and assets over time and go grandchildren, etc.

I dont think we will get to the Federal limits on estate tax when the last dies, so that is not a major factor.

Has anyone selected an independent trustee vice children, which one, and would you still do it after having worked with them for awhile?
