Estate Planning Solutions for Blended Families
Without the proper planning, the assets that you brought into your second marriage could end up entirely with the children of your new family, shortchanging your children, if that spouse survives you. Learn ways to protect assets brought by each parent into second marriages so that all of the children- "his, hers and ours"- are treated fairly at the deaths of the parents.
