Going through a relationship breakup is horrible. Committing to somebody new afterwards is also hard, particularly when children and blended families are involved.
It is essential that you obtain good advice, particularly if you are bringing significant assets into the marriage. It is also important to talk about these issues with your new partner, particularly if you are then going to be looking at making proper arrangements for your children, their children, and superannuation and retirement.
One in every three Australian marriages ends in divorce, and one in every five people marries more than once. It’s imperative that modern day blended families consider estate planning.
A recent Sydney Morning Herald article highlighted the need for an “inheritance plan” and Martin Bullock Lawyers fully supports this concept.
