Life Partners With or Without Children

Estate Planning You Can Rely On

When you are not married but have a “significant other” estate planning may become even more important. The state laws for distribution of your estate do not take “significant others” into consideration. If you have children together, it becomes even more so.

Taking action now ill allow your chosen loved one to have the access to your hospital bedside, ability to handle and make financial and health-related decisions, and ensure your wishes are carried out as you would have liked. Failing to have the proper legal documents in place may result in your family (“blood relatives”) making decisions and denying your significant other these privileges.

Without the protection of estate planning, you significant other could be evicted from your home, denied access to your business and financial affairs or other unintended repercussions.

If the two of you have children together, your significant other may lose custody to care for them.

Estate planning when you have a significant other – with or without children – is not optional, but rather a necessity.

We know your time is valuable. We promise to make the process as simple and easy for you as possible.
