    Estate Planning For A Blended Family

    When single moms and dads re-marry, they have what is called a blended family. For estate planning, planning and good communication is required. Coachella Valley trust and estate lawyers can help with the details to make the process go smoother.

    Why Is A Blended Marriage More Difficult For Estate Planning?

    Because there may be other children from previous marriages, and this can be difficult to decide what to leave them in terms of property and assets. These issues will need to be looked at thoroughly because, in most cases, each spouse will want to give their own children things individually.
