Estate planning and blended families

Blended families are more prone to dispute than is the case with first relationships and face a range of challenges, practically and legally. Superannuation, estate planning and family law disputes can often be avoided with proper planning and strategic decision making.

Daniel Smedley, delivered a presentation on estate planning and blended families as part of the Television Education Network’s 10th Annual Estate Planning Conference, on 17 March, 2016

  • what is a blended family?
  • issues associated with estate planning for blended families;
  • strategies considering the blended family characteristics;
  • control issues for testamentary trusts and existing trusts; and
  • additional steps to ensure the testator’s wishes are carried out.
