When two families become one – practical guidance on estate protection, wills and guardianship appointments

Webinar | Family

About This Webinar

Monday 11 October 2021

In our fast moving world, the importance of family is anchored, but the concept of “family” is an evolving one – moving faster than the law, in many cases.

With divorce rates rising, blended families are becoming more common but bringing together two families into one home can be complicated and emotional with the introduction of new partners and step siblings. Getting the right legal guidance on estates and assets from the outset can avoid messy situations should the relationship not work out or a person dies.

This is the second webinar in our series of three and focussed on blended families, our experts will talk through a case study which covered:

Estate protection

Wills

Claims against a deceased person’s estate

Guardianship appointments
