Why Estate Planning for Blended Families is Critical

Estate Planning for Blended Families: Why wills and trusts are so important!

Society today looks different from our parent's day or even just several years ago. Society is mobile, fluid and changing faster than some might like. Today, being a wills and trust attorney is more interesting than ever before.

In my parents' generation, the phrase "blended family" didn't exist. While there were blended families, they were far fewer than today. Add same sex marriages to the mix and it's a whole new world of estate planning.

Learning how to address issues of blended or any non-traditional family is a vital element in many estate plans, wills and trusts. In the article below, you will find an excellent discussion of these issues and there is no reason to repeat them here.
