5 Reasons Why Families With Any-Age Children Should Have A Trust

If you or your spouse dies, when it comes to providing for surviving children, sometimes a will is not enough to protect their inheritances. This is where a trust comes in. Trusts are not just for the wealthy. A trust is a legal entity that can own property and assets. Through the instructions you write into the trust, it can buy, sell, negotiate, manage, and disburse its assets for the benefit of your children. It gives you a lot of control after you pass away.

BLENDED FAMILY? ESTATE PLANNING: What's the right mix for a blended family?

There are all types of blended families. Generally, a blended family is defined as a family that is formed when adults join in a new relationship and both parties have children from previous relationships. My sister-in-law is an example of another type of blended family. She and her new husband both had children from previous marriages; in addition, her new husband was parenting his step-daughter who lived with him after her mom passed away. I have another friend who is raising her grandchild as her own. The trials and tribulations of these families have been celebrated in TV shows and movies such as Yours, Mine and Ours, Cheaper By The Dozen, Modern Family, The Brady Bunch, The Blind Spot and even Cinderella. Cinderella is a great example of the challenges that happen without estate planning. It may have ended happily ever after, but there were a lot of problems before “ever after.”

However, online generators can't replace estate planning in every aspect, especially if your estate has any special circumstances outside of the norm. For this reason, it's best to hire an attorney to ensure your possessions and family remain protected after your passing.
