Blended Family Estate Planning

Estate Planning for Blended Families

More and more, modern families are made up of all different variations–second marriages, unmarried partners, step-kids, mixed-property, business interests–all of these issues make it more important than ever to have a comprehensive customized estate plan that addresses your particular goals and protects your interests. Especially when children are involved, these issues can be very sensitive and each parent may need to take special steps to be sure all of the children are taken care of and that assets are distributed according to your wishes. I have experience and can help you with various tools designed to protect these interests: creating children’s trusts, community/separate property agreements, guardianship appointments, and other tools to best meet your needs. At every step of the process, you can be certain that I am personally involved in drafting every step of your estate plan, and will present and explain to you the various options available to create the optimal estate plan for you and your family.
