Today, it is quite common for a person to have a partner with children from a second or subsequent relationship. When two families merge, it becomes crucial to seek professional legal advice to help protect the allocation of your legacy.
It is human nature for someone with a blended family to be concerned when making a will, that should they die first, their partner will not adequately provide for their children from the previous relationship.

Your estate planning is not about you… it is about those you love!
