When you are married with children, estate planning is usually pretty straightforward. You want your spouse making decisions for you if you are incapacitated, and you want to make sure your assets go to your spouse when you die, and then to your children after your spouse is gone.
Seems simple, right? Wrong.
If it was that straightforward, our probate courts wouldn’t be clogged with the impact of the complexity of money and family and there wouldn’t be $58 Billion (with a B) worth of assets in the various state departments of unclaimed property across the United States.
The reality is that there are a myriad of questions that need to be answered to ensure your family stays out of court and out of conflict in the event of your incapacity or death and some tactical specifics that need to happen to ensure your assets don’t end up lost to the State Department of Unclaimed Property because your family overlooks something when you can’t be there to guide them.
If you are in a second (or third or more) marriage situation with children from a prior marriage (we call this a “blended family”), well, it’s an almost guarantee that the people you love will end up in conflict if you don’t plan ahead.
Most of all, your wealth isn’t measured just by the dollars in your bank account, but also by the well-being of the people you love. You can show your family how much you truly care by getting your estate planning handled so they will stay out of court and out of conflict, no matter what.
