What Is a Issue? Definition, Uses and Importance.

A term often used in place of issue is “lineal descendants.” The word can have a variety of meanings, but when it comes to family trees this one simply means all-natural children and their kids down through the generations who are adopted by someone else (either an individual person or organization). These folks are considered part of your new family no matter how far away from home you live–they’re still blood.

“Issue” refers to a person’s lineal descendants of all generations, with the definitions of “child” and “parent” determining the relationship between parent and child at each generation.

In many cases, an estate planning lawyer would stipulate that a beneficiary’s “issue” will get a bequest if that person dies. To be clear, the phrase “issue” can also refer to intestate succession and anti-lapse regulations.

To ensure that the Trustor’s estate planning documents accurately represent his or her preferences, a Trustor has the option of expanding or contracting the definition of an issue. Consequently, a Trustor might want to include adopted persons who were under the age of adoption or stepchildren. (It’s also possible to omit some people.)
