  • Pitfalls of jointly-held assets
  • Step-children and “step” grandchildren: Are they part of the plan?
  • Marriage contracts and other family law considerations
  • Legal structure versus practical reality
  • Use of spousal trusts with blended families
  • The new principal residence exemption rules and the effects on estate planning in blended families
