Just married? Planning to be married? Congratulations! Estate planning is probably the last thing you want to do as a newlywed, but it is one of the smartest long-term decisions you can make. Planning your estate early on in the marriage will protect and care for your spouse. It can help avoid a host of potential issues and expenses down the road. Once you are married you should consider making a will, health care directives, and a power of attorney to appoint your new spouse. Once the babies start to arrive, your estate plan may need to be updated with trusts and guardians.
Taking the time to sit down with your spouse and speak openly about your estate plans will ensure that, should the worst happen, your new family is prepared to handle the unexpected.
By beginning your life together with a sound estate plan, you not only help avoid potential issues and expenses in the future, but also gain the satisfaction of knowing you have provided a secure future for your new family.
If you already planned a wedding, planning for the future should be a breeze.
