Traditional estate and financial planning strategies no longer apply to today’s “modern” families. This presentation will review how the definition of “family” has evolved over the decades and the planning strategies unique to blended families, same-sex married couples, and “I Do Not” couples.
Attendees will learn:
- How the definition of “family” changes the estate planning landscape
- Estate planning tips for blended families, same-sex married couples, and couples who choose not to marry.
