Blended Families

Consider the situation where the couple in question wish to ensure their likely substantial assets, transfer smoothly to each other should one of them die, and once they have both died their assets are split evenly between their children (including those from their previous relationships).

Often there is a concern that one or more of the children may not be completely happy with assets passing to the new partner upon the death of their parent, particularly if the relationship between these parties is not great.
