Estate planning for blended families is complex and it requires a watchful eye and a delicate touch. Clients in blended families should understand that there are important additional issues unique to them that must be addressed, like how to properly provide for their spouse without accidentally disinheriting their own kids. Planners need to look at the clients’ differences in goals and help them navigate the often-challenging discussions.
These issues raise a number of questions around estate and financial planning. Do your clients need a living will, a revocable living trust, an irrevocable trust, retirement trusts? How do they need to address beneficiary designations on financial accounts?
We’ll address ethics rules that have special applications to blended families, as well as looking at statutory preferences, powers and rules that may conflict with a client’s goals.
