Why Planning Wills for Blended Families Is Difficult?

It is harder for many people to make Wills because of their family structures. Those having blended families involving step children are usually hesitant about estate planning or making a Will as they worry that the process will be even more complicated and stressful than usual.

Planning a will for Blended Families

People re-marrying and having blended families is pretty common but one should not forget the importance of Creating a Will so your assets are distributed without any dispute amongst your loved ones and dependents after you die.

It is quite natural for people to want to ensure that their spouse is provided for after they leave the world, but they also want to provide for their children’s needs in the longer term, especially if their children aren’t yet grown up.

Messy? Stressful? It is!

But nowhere close to the consequences of not having a will drafted!

And what about those Do-it -yourself kits?

Without proper legal advice and the experience and knowledge the family lawyers at Platinum Lawyers have, the will you create with one of those do-it-yourself kits might not be legally enforceable and/or legally binding.
Leave your Estate Planning in the safe hands of experienced lawyers who are able to draft a will tailored to your individual needs and wishes. This would alleviate unnecessary stress and opportunity for a will to be contested and it has been drafted by a professional legal representative.
Speak to one of our family lawyers today if you want advice on drafting a will. Don’t put it off as you never know when you will need it. Our friendly family lawyers can also give you advice on Enduring Power of Attorney and Enduring Guardianship which are other essential documents clients will have us draft when drafting a Will. At Platinum Lawyers, we can offer a competitive fixed fee for all 3 documents as a package.
Also remember that it is very important to update your estate planning documents on a regular basis and especially if there is a significant change in your circumstances. There is no point having a Will that was drafted 10 years ago and doesn’t apply to your current situation.
