Join Your Lives Well
Getting married is a huge step in your life. Maneuvering the changes of what tying the knot means to your financial plans, merging finances, and aligning on your wishes can be overwhelming. You probably know your spouse is entitled to receive certain funds when you pass away, but did you know in some circumstances, your spouse’s family might receive your property instead of your family? Also, even though it’s not fun to think about, you may want to list your spouse as the person who will make decisions for you in the event that you can’t. If a legal plan isn’t in place, state law will determine who gets your assets when you pass away and who will make the important decisions you accidentally put off.
