When to Visit a Wills Attorney in Rochester Hills, MI

Plan your estate along with your wedding

It's never too early or late in life to create an estate plan. One of the most practical times to start the estate planning process is before you get married. Every prenuptial agreement should include agreements about the surviving spouse's rights after death. Part of your complete estate plan should also specify how these rights change after a divorce or separation.

No matter what stage of life you're in, the Law Office of Cynthia S. Andrews in Rochester Hills, Michigan can help you create a comprehensive estate plan.

Why you need a complete estate plan

Just telling your friends and family members what your wishes are isn't enough. Unless you have a complete estate plan, drafted and validated by an attorney...

1.

The state will make decisions for you.

Without a valid will, the probate court will divide your estate.

2.

A judge will name your child's guardian.

Naming a godparent isn't a legal act; you've got to name a legal guardian for your minor children.

3.

You can't choose who makes medical decisions for you.

If you don't name a power of attorney and you become incapacitated, the court will appoint someone to make medical decisions on your behalf.
