Estate Planning When You're Married with Children

When you are married with children in Hawaii, estate planning ​seems pretty straightforward.

 

You want your spouse to make decisions for you if you are incapacitated, and you want to make sure your assets go to your spouse when you die and then to your children after your spouse is gone.

It Seems Simple, Right?

Name Legal Guardians

for Your Kids

It's free and easy. No excuses.

If only ​our probate courts weren’t ​clogged with the impact of the complexity of money and family. ​

Then it would be "easy" to go through court and there wouldn’t be $58 ​billion (with a ​"b") of assets in the ​state ​departments of ​unclaimed ​property across the United States. 

 

In Hawaii alone, there was $280 million as of 2017 in the Hawaii Unclaimed Property Program with more than $30 million added each year.

There are a myriad of questions that need to be answered to ensure your family stays out of court and out of conflict in the event of your incapacity or death, even when you are simply married with children.​ 

 

Also,  some tactical specifics ​need to happen to ensure your assets don’t end up lost to the ​state ​department of ​unclaimed ​property ​if your family overlooks something when you are not there to guide them.

 

​Plus, if you are in a second (or third or more) marriage situation with children from a prior marriage (I call this a “blended family”), well it’s an almost guarantee the people you love will end up in conflict if you don’t plan ahead.

 

​Most of all, your wealth isn’t measured just by the dollars in your bank account but by the well being of the people you love. 

If you are reading this, it is because you care enough to get your estate planning handled so your family will stay out of court and out of conflict no matter what.

We know you are busy and we promise to make the process as simple and easy for you as possible.
