Why Marriage is a Good Idea for Unmarried Partners

estate planning attorney Ann Arbor

End of life or estate planning is absolutely essential for unmarried partners. For example, if you’re married and don’t have will or trust and your spouse dies, the law provides that the surviving spouse will wind up with all or most of the decedent’s estate.
  If you’re not married and have no estate plan, it will be a mess. The law will direct that your estate will pass to your children, if any, then your parents or your siblings. Your surviving partner will receive nothing unless you have made appropriate arrangements prior to your death.
