Estate Planning For Blended Families In Pennsylvania
At Worth, Magee & Fisher, P.C., we provide comprehensive estate planning for a wide range of families, including blended families. Our estate practice is led by attorney Eric Strauss. Attorney Strauss has more than 20 years of legal experience and has helped hundreds of individuals create wills, trusts and other estate planning instruments.
We understand that estate planning can be highly sensitive for blended families. In many cases, parents want to ensure their children are not disinherited by stepparents. In other cases, an individual wants to protect the financial well-being of a current spouse. Regardless of your specific objectives, we have the proper estate planning vehicles to get you there.
Your Unique Concerns Matter To Us
The structure of the American family has been changing for decades. Many individuals are in their second, third and fourth marriages — some with children from different marriages and many with stepchildren. However, regardless of unique circumstances, one thing does not change — the need for intelligent estate planning.
Estate planning can be complex for those with blended families. You may wish to leave assets to a current spouse, children from previous marriages, stepchildren or grandchildren. Without a solid estate plan, succession laws are very clear about where assets will go upon your death. Unfortunately, these designations may not be aligned with your true final wishes. In order to ensure each family member receives what you intend, it is important to consult with an experienced estate planning lawyer.
