Step Children and WillsSubmitted by tyra on Wed, 09/06/2006 - 4:19pm
We are in the process of writing our wills. My dh and I have a bs and my SD. We have been married for just over a year and together for over three years. I love my SD but differently than my own son. She is a only child for her mom who plans to have no more kids. Financially her mom is doing well...thanks to extremely large spousal support payments and child supprt payments. I have a good job and so does my husband.
My problem is...do we split things fifty fifty with the two children or do I give my half to our son and my husband splits his half with the two kids. We got married later in life so we both have our own accumulations.
I guess I feel that the SD will get 100% from her BM and maybe 50% from her dad. Or she I consider her my child as well and give her 50%. I know wills can be changed as circumstances change.
I am just stuck and not sure what is the right thing to do.
Thans for your help
