Married with Children

Married with Children

When you are married with children, you would think that estate planning is pretty straightforward. Ideally, you’d want your spouse to make decisions for you if you are incapacitated, and you’d want your assets to go to your spouse when you die. After your spouse is gone, you’d want your assets to transfer to your children.

Seems simple, right? 

If it were, 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) of assets in the State Departments of Unclaimed Property across the United States. 

There is 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 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. 

And, 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 almost guaranteed 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 by the well-being of the people you love. That is why it is so important to get your estate planning handled so your family will stay out of court and out of conflict, no matter what.
