Estate Planning After Remarriage
Some people may remarry after a divorce or after a spouse passes away. Either way, there are many things to look at after a person remarries. Some questions may be: How can you make sure that your children from your previous marriage will get their inheritance after your remarriage? What if you have children from both your previous and current marriages? How can you maintain control over certain assets to go to certain individuals? During this program we will address different situations that may appear in a second marriage and how they can be planned for effectively.
