Blended families have come a long way since the Brady Bunch of the 1970’s. Today’s second (or third or fourth) marriages raise complex legal, financial and practical issues for families - and for their lawyers! Balancing the interests of the surviving spouse with those of children from prior marriages can be challenging for even the most experienced practitioner. Do you have the skills you need to meet the needs of this growing client base? This convenient, 90 minute webinar with experienced Toronto estates lawyers Rachel Blumenfeld and Marni Pernica will examine essential estate-planning tools lawyers can use to minimize disputes and protect the interests of all involved. After taking this course you will:
