How Do I Adjust My Estate Plan in Preparation for Marriage?

marriageWhen you are preparing to get married, one of the last things you may have on your mind is your estate plan. However, this is something that should be first and foremost in your thoughts as you prepare to say, “I do.” Since you will soon have a new spouse and possibly new children, it is important to carefully review your estate plan and make the necessary changes. To do so and make sure all goes just as you wish, consult with a Wisconsin estate planning attorney at McLario Helm Bertling & Spiegel.

Modifying Your Will
If you already have an existing will or need to write one, doing so once you are married is of the utmost importance. By doing so, you can not only make sure your family will be protected financially after your death, but you can also use this time to spell out any other important details you want done upon your death. By creating a will or changing an existing one, you and your family will have peace of mind.

Life Insurance
Along with your will, you should also sit down and reexamine your life insurance plans. If you already have existing policies, you may need to change beneficiaries or add your new spouse to the list of beneficiaries. Also, you may want to take out a new policy for your spouse so that your family can have the financial safety net needed should an unexpected death occur. Due to the many complexities associated with life insurance, always have your questions answered by an experienced Wisconsin estate-planning attorney at McLario Helm Bertling & Spiegel.
