What Blended Families Should Know

Estate Planning for all families begins with the same foundational steps, but if you are a blended family then additional steps need to be taken to ensure all of your loved ones are protected and your wishes are followed. Every state has different requirements regarding who will have the right to make decisions if you should become incapacitated or pass away. It’s important to talk to an attorney to develop a plan that meets the needs of each unique family situation.

“Debbie recognizes that the dynamics of each family should be reflected in planning for the future. I have three young children, one from a previous relationship, in a blended family and it’s important that they are protected if anything should happen to me. Debbie made me realize the importance of creating a custom estate plan by describing situations that never crossed my mind. No family is a cookie-cutter case and their estate plan shouldn’t be either. Her ability to communicate complicated issues and put them into perspective made the process much more pleasant.”  -Fred Campos
