Estate Planning For Blended Families in Colorado
In today’s world, the distinction between his and mine is more relevant than ever. Many people enter into their second marriage later in life. Planning for a blended family protects your spouse’s share of assets without having to complicate the inheritance process with multiple children.
Planning for blended families enables you to protect the spouse after death but also ensure that he/she does not utilize the funds for their children to your exclusion, or for a new spouse they may meet. You may also find your assets at risk if your spouse enters a nursing home or gets sued. Proper planning ensures you do not lose your assets to your second spouse’s nursing home expenses or lawsuits.
