NEW YORK, Dec. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The largest growing estate-planning market in the United States is now the modern or blended family, which brings together parents and children from other marriages or relationships. According to Census Bureau data, there are now more blended families than any other type of family.
Remarkably, until now, no estate planning resource has focused on the complications that develop when attempting to create estate plans in this crucial area. The Tools & Techniques of Estate Planning for Modern Families is the first and only resource that concentrates exclusively on handling the issues associated with estate planning for blended families. It fully covers the most common scenarios, including "Brady Bunch," "May/December," "Empty Nesters," "Eat, Drink, and Remarry," "Non-Traditional Blended Family," "Yours, Mine, and Ours," and more.
Stephan Leimberg, an award winning author and creator of the Leimberg Library Series, available from National Underwriter, says, "So much has changed in the almost 50 years I've been teaching, lecturing, and writing on tax law. But nothing will have more ground-shaking impact on our planning of estates in the future than the evolution of the modern family. The Tools and Techniques of Estate Planning for Modern Families provides sophisticated and detailed answers and is the ideal companion to the classic The Tools and Techniques of Estate Planning."
"Blended family scenarios can present a minefield of malpractice possibilities. We released this book to give professionals a guide through these treacherous waters—which can also be quite lucrative," says Rick Kravitz, Vice President and Executive Director of Premium Content at Summit Professional Networks. "This is literally the only resource that provides proven tips, identifies traps, and delivers practical planning tools that professionals can implement immediately. Plus, it does all of this in the familiar Tools & Techniques format, which estate-planning professionals have enthusiastically embraced."
Expert author L. Paul Hood, Jr., currently Director of Planned Giving at The University of Toledo Foundation, has extensive experience in tax and estate planning/administration. He holds a J.D. from Louisiana State University Law Center and a Master of Laws in Taxation from Georgetown University Law Center. Together, he and Stephan Leimberg have created a resource that enables professionals to fully plan for unmarried partners, take into consideration all estate-planning issues connected with blended families, quickly fill in the huge gaps in traditional estate-planning references, and steer far clear of major malpractice pitfalls.
The Tools & Techniques of Estate Planning for Modern Families is part of the popular Leimberg Library Series and provides complete coverage of the principles, processes, and practices related to estate planning for blended families, presenting a well-organized approach professionals can follow with confidence.
