With the high incidence of divorce and remarriage, many of our clients have blended families — that is, a family where one or both spouses have children from a previous marriage. For blended families, failure to plan appropriately can have unexpected and very negative consequences.
If you have a blended family and want to be sure that your assets will go where you want them to go and that all of your loved ones will be taken care of without having to fight over your estate, you need to work with a knowledgeable attorney who can come up with a legally sound plan to carry out your wishes.
At Peak Legal Group, we have experience working both with individuals marrying for the second or third time and with blended families. We can help you make sure that no one gets accidentally disinherited, that your ex-spouse doesn’t end up controlling your assets, and that everything is set up in a way that won’t lead to hard feelings and family fighting when you’re gone.
We will take the time to learn about your situation and your concerns, and then we’ll explain how things would work out for the family without a proper plan. Finally, we’ll help you put together a plan to make sure that everyone in your family is taken care of the way you want.
