Getting Married? Conversations to have before walking down the aisle

man proposed to his girlfriend for a weddingGetting married is a big decision. You’re tying yourself spiritually and legally to someone dear to you and doing it right means having a few important conversations before walking down the aisle. Even if you’re not tying the knot in National Weddings Month, this is still a good time to show your love and make sure you and your beloved are doing everything right.

Consider How Marriage Affects Your Finances

The wedding itself is usually a significant expense, and it won’t be the last. As you’re planning your wedding, be sure to consider how it will affect your budget. Some people opt for smaller weddings and a larger honeymoon.  If you aren’t working with a financial advisor now might be the time to bring their expertise to help you with your budget and whether to combine your finances or not.

Save Money and Headaches on Real Estate Transactions

If you’re planning to purchase a property for your family to settle down and grow in or consider keeping one of your properties as an asset to rent having an attorney to discuss the best way to structure things and protect you personally can be helpful.  In addition, often working with an attorney vs. a realtor can save you thousands of dollars.

Update Essential Estate Planning Documents

When it comes to estate planning, it’s best to understand that there is more to it than just writing a Will. This is an area where Milwaukee estate planning attorneys can be a big help.
