Michigan Lawyers Handling Complex Estate Planning Matters
Estate planning in a second or subsequent marriage tends to be more complex than building an estate plan during a first marriage. There are additional things to consider, especially if either spouse has children from a previous marriage.
Attorneys at Hall & Bolles, P.C., represent individuals looking to create an estate plan before getting married for the second time, or during a second marriage. We also represent parties to prenuptial agreements. To discuss your specific circumstances and concerns, please contact a Mount Pleasant second marriage estate planning lawyer from our firm today.
Your Estate Planning Needs May Change
When life circumstances change — the loss of a spouse, the birth of a child, entering into a second marriage — it is important to ensure that your estate plan is current and accommodating of your needs. At Hall & Bolles, P.C., we have significant experience working with blended families in creating customized estate plans. We can assist with the following:
- Ensuring that children are protected when a parent enters into a new marriage
- Ensuring that children receive the portion of the estate that a parent wishes to pass on
- Determining beneficiaries
- Determining a plan for distributing jointly owned assets
We will make sure that your estate plan is customized to meet your family's unique needs and goals. Without an estate plan, the government will decide how to distribute your assets. In some cases, failure to take action may result in your children not getting the inheritance you want them to. It is important to take legal steps now to ensure that your wishes are carried out after your death through the use of wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and other estate planning entities.
