Protecting your children's inheritances when you remarry

We all want our divorced or widowed parents to find love again, particularly as they get into their later years. However, when they decide to remarry, as more and more seniors are, adult children often become concerned about what that will mean for their inheritance.

What family dynamics can predict an estate battle?

One advantage of having a carefully-considered, detailed estate plan is that you minimize the chance of fighting among heirs after you're gone. Even close family members can turn on each other if they believe that they were unfairly or mistakenly denied the inheritance they expected.

What debts must be paid after a person dies?

One of the major concerns of family members who have lost a loved one has to do with the financial aspects of the death. People who are dealing with an estate that is a fairly nice size will have to determine what debts must be paid and in what order. The estate administrator is the person who will have to deal with these matters.

What happens if a parent dies in debt?

As Americans live longer and have to stretch their retirement savings farther, many people die owing more money than they have. Increasingly, older Americans are in debt -- sometimes substantial debt. Almost a quarter of people over 75 are still making mortgage payments. When people who have more debt than assets die, their adult children are forced to deal with their parents' debt as they manage their estate.
