Legal Issues Facing People in Second Marriages

In the next couple of weeks, we will be blogging on some of the legal issues facing older people who are in second marriages. As Maine elder law and estate planning attorneys, we have many clients in this situation. Many of them have children from previous marriages and want to balance the needs of those children with the needs of a surviving spouse.

Some of the legal vehicles for ensuring this balance are: prenuptial and postnuptial agreements; leaving the surviving spouse a life estate in the home; marital and family trusts; a special needs trust for a spouse who is likely to need expensive long term care.
