Can I Disinherit My Spouse by Leaving the Spouse Out of My Will?

estate planning attorney Ann ArborOur clients raise this question for various reasons. They could be inquiring because they are not getting along and don’t want their spouse to receive anything from their estate when they pass away. It could be that the parties have a pre-nuptial agreement or a financial plan in place that the client wants to make certain is not subject to change by the spouse after the client dies. It could also be a blended family with each spouse wanting to give all of his or her assets to his or her family and not to the family of the spouse. Or it could be that one or both parties are facing long-term care expenses and it’s not their intention to provide additional assets to a surviving spouse that may disqualify them from entitlements or Medicaid assistance.
