The traditional American family of a mother, a father and several children is slowly disappearing as the standard household in California and other states throughout the nation. As individuals become parents without marriage, divorces separate families and new marriages create new unions, the make-up of families is changing to become more inclusive and representative of how people actually live. With all of these changes, though, planning for the future can become complicated when families blend, separate and reorganize in new groupings.
This is where the help of a dedicated estate planning attorney can be incredibly helpful. Lawyers who understand and respect the realities of mixed and blended families can support their clients to ensure that their estates are organized to ensure that dependents and heirs from different relationships will have the opportunity to benefit from their end-of-life assets.
