MARRIED WITH CHILDREN
Estate Planning You Can Trust
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?
If it were simple, our probate courts wouldn’t be clogged with the impact of the complexity of money and family. And there wouldn’t be $58 billion of assets in the State Departments of Unclaimed Property across the United States! In North Carolina, we are approaching $1 Billion!
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 there are 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.
And, if you are in a second (or third or more) marriage situation with children from a prior marriage (a “blended family”), it’s foreseeable that the people you love will end up in conflict if you don’t plan ahead.
Most of all, your wealth isn’t only measured by the dollars in your bank account, but by the well-being of the people you love. You care enough to get your estate planning handled so your family will stay out of court and out of conflict, to the best of your ability.
