Non-Traditional Families

There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach to wealth management. This is especially true for non-traditional families that often face a myriad of complex financial and interpersonal situations.  Non-traditional families, now the majority in the U.S., can take many forms, including:

  • Single parent families
  • Blended and divorced families
  • Unmarried opposite-sex couples, with or without children
  • Same sex-couples, with or without children
  • Intergenerational households, such as parents living with, or dependent on, adult children

With the complex and ever-changing legal and economic environment in the U.S., standard financial planning tools can prove severely insufficient in addressing the unique needs and concerns of non-traditional families.  Effective planning for non-traditional families requires a high level of coordination between expert advisors, such as attorneys and tax professionals, and creative strategies are often needed to help families find the optimal solution for financial success.
