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 was 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 Departments of Unclaimed Property in states across the United States.

There are numerous 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. There are also some tactical specifics that need to happen to ensure your assets don't end up lost to the Department of Unclaimed Property because your family overlooks something when you can't be there to guide them.

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 a guarantee the people you love will end up in conflict if you don't plan ahead.

Most of all, your wealth shouldn't be measured just 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, no matter what.

We know you are busy and we promise to make the process as simple and easy for you as possible.
