Estate Planning Considerations for the Modern, Blended Family

estate-planning-blended-family.jpgEstate planning has become a lot more challenging in more recent years. As the divorce rate has increased, so has the amount of second (and third) marriages. This brings about a number of dynamics with what is known as the modern "blended" family. This involves children from prior marriages or relationships, which can bring about a number of challenging and difficult decisions to be made during the estate planning process.

Pre-Paid Funeral Plans: Buyer Beware

Funerals rank among the most expensive purchases many consumers will ever make. A traditional funeral costs about $7,000, although "extras" like flowers, obituary notices, acknowledgment cards and limousines can bring the total to well over $10,000. Moreover, people often "overspend" on a funeral or burial because they think of it as a reflection of their feelings for the deceased.

Who Should You Choose to Be Your Successor Trustee?

who-should-you-choose-successor-trustee.jpgWhen putting together your Living Trust estate plan, you will be asked to name a Successor Trustee. During your lifetime, you serve as the Trustee of your own trust. You control all of your assets as usual, but should something happen to you and you are no longer able to serve (such as become incapacitated or pass away), whomever you have named as Successor Trustee will step in.
