Step Parents v Step Children in Estate Litigation
In Florida, we have many second and third marriages. Often times, you’ll have a second or third spouse who may not get along with the children of their spouse from the prior relationship. In Palm Beach, there’s a lot of marriages where the new spouse is actually younger than the adult children. Unfortunately, they don’t get along sometimes, and you’ll have step-parents being trustee of a trust or personal representative of an estate, and the children from a prior marriage or relationship as beneficiaries. Unfortunately, this can often lead to probate and trust litigation. Knowing how to deal with those family dynamics can save you time, money, and thousands of dollars in legal fees.
