Second and Subsequent Marriage Financial Planning Lawyers In Warren — Serving All Michigan Clients

A second or subsequent marriage will have a significant impact on your current estate plan. If you do not have an estate plan, you may be surprised to learn how your assets will pass according to the laws and statutes. Here are a few examples that may be relevant to you:

  • Unless you put your specific wishes into a will or trust, there is no guarantee that those you choose will get what you want to leave them.
  • A common misconception is that no matter what, your children will get the bulk of your estate. This is not necessarily true. We have represented clients who were married for decades and have children. Then they divorced, remarried and later died. Their new spouse inherited the majority of the estate instead of the children because the estate plans were not revised.
  • Property you own outright may become marital property once you marry. Any transfer of that property might not proceed without the new spouse's agreement. This could be problematic if you hoped to leave your house to your child, for example.

Before you get married again, consult our second marriage estate planning lawyers in Michigan. We will help you explore your options and encourage open communication between you both to avoid unnecessary future conflicts. We can discuss retirement benefits, beneficiary designations, wills, trusts, powers of attorney, medical decisions and more.
