Marital Status Change, Estate Planning | Promise Law Hampton VA

Change in Marital Status

A new relationship status is a new beginning. Whether you’re starting a new life as a couple or on your own, things are changing. Now your estate plan needs to change to match your new life, and Promise Law can help.

We make the estate planning process simple by asking all the right questions, creating all the necessary documents, and guiding you on re-titling of assets or change of beneficiary designations as needed. We’ll help you make sure that promises made are promises kept.

You Might Not Know That:

  • Marriage between blended families, especially with children from prior relationships, can create unique planning considerations.
  • If you want to include children from prior marriage, “I love you” wills with identical provisions are not sufficient.
  • Many married individuals have joint accounts, so incapacity or death of the first spouse may not adversely affect them/their family. On the other hand, divorced or widowed individuals have a particular need to make sure someone is able to handle affairs in the event of incapacity or death.
