Stepfamilies & Blended Families Estate and Legacy Planning

A video guide for people who have stepfamilies or blended families

Here is the latest in our occasional series of video guides presented by our resident Estate Planning Expert, Gina Stanton, answering the questions most often asked by the people we help and the readers of our blog.

This video is especially for people who have stepfamilies or blended families. If yours is a second marriage, if you’re with a new partner, and if you have children from your previous marriage or relationship, you probably have some of these concerns: -

  • How do I provide security for my other half if something happens to me?
  • How can I make sure my own kids are OK if something happens to me?
  • What if my partner remarries after I’m gone?
  • Can I make sure everyone’s needs are met fairly?

Planning a secure future for yourself, your other half and your children doesn’t have to be a dilemma. With the right advice, you can ensure everyone’s needs are met fairly.

In this video, I share with you the story of Ralph and Diane, a couple at the heart of a blended family, and the solutions we came up with for them, which may give you some ideas for how best to take care of your family’s future.

Every stepfamily is unique, with its own unique set of needs. As Ralph and Diane’s story shows, there are some really effective strategies that can help you meet your family’s particular needs.

The first thing you should do is have an honest conversation with your partner about the future and how you’d like to protect your family. And when you agree about what you’d like to achieve, we can help you find the safest and most cost-effective way of doing so. Just give us a call on 0151 601 5399, or get in touch by filling in the contact form below. We’re here to help.

"Although we didn't think our financial affairs or family arrangements were particularly complicated, Gina talked us through all the things we should consider to ensure what we put in place was right for us and our family. She is clearly very knowledgeable and gave us lots of advice and guidance and explained everything so we understood the implications of our decisions. The paperwork was drawn up quickly and accurately based on our discussions. She also helped my parents with their estate planning. She reviewed their current arrangements and has drawn up lasting Powers of Attorney for them both. Again, everything was explained clearly and sensitively and I know my parents are also very happy with the service they received. I would happily recommend WillWritten to anyone considering making a Will or looking to review their estate planning. "
