Estate Planning to Keep Your Family Out of Conflict & Out of Court.
If you are in a marriage and you have children from a prior marriage, it’s essential that you engage in estate planning that will keep the people you love out of court and conflict. (No matter how close or friendly your new spouse and your children are, there is simply an unavoidable, inherent conflict between them upon your death.)
Having said that, this conflict can be mitigated and you can ensure that the people you love most — your new spouse and your children — will each be well-taken care of with the most ease possible by proper estate planning. You can even take actions to support their being on the same team with each other in a time of grief.
It does take planning though, and we are well-trained and highly skilled in planning for the needs of blended families, which is the term of art in the legal profession for married couples with children from a prior marriage.
So, if you have children from a prior marriage, contact us for a Life and Legacy Planning Session where we can look at everything you own, everyone you love, and what would happen when something happens to you. Then, you can get informed, educated, and empowered to make the right planning decisions for the people you love.
