Estate Planning inside families 


Most families put off estate planning because they do not think they have significant assets that need protection. The truth is that a thoughtful estate plan is the only way to protect those who you love if something unthinkable were to happen to you. Even if you do not own substantial assets, you must have a basic plan in place to handle the emergency such as incapacity and death. For instance, you should name a legal guardian who is in the United States if you have a minor child. A lot of immigrant couples have their relatives outside the country. Once they both pass away, the court has nobody to assign the child to be the legal guardian. Even after your child becomes an adult, you also need to plan on how to protect your assets against creditors; how to avoid asset division in the divorce cases; who will be making medical decisions for you. In a blended family (one or both spouse has more than one marriage), the relationship turns out to be complicated. You want to make sure that your current spouse and your own children are protected.
