Love Knows No Boundaries: Estate Planning for Unmarried Couples

by | Nov 8, 2023

Hello, I’m Connie Aschenbrenner, your friendly neighborhood estate planning attorney in Alaska. Today, let’s delve into a topic close to my heart – estate planning for unmarried couples. Whether you’re a middle-aged couple beginning your journey together, a senior who’s found love later in life, or a member of the sandwich generation, this blog is for you.

Imagine the excitement of building a life with your partner, but without the formalities of marriage. Love knows no boundaries, but life’s uncertainties can affect all of us, married or not. For unmarried couples, ensuring your partner is cared for in the event of the unexpected is essential.

Estate planning can be a touchy subject, especially when it comes to unmarried couples. The legal system often prioritizes married spouses, which can leave unmarried partners in a vulnerable position if tragedy strikes. Without proper planning, your partner might not have a say in critical decisions or receive the assets you want them to have.

The solution to these challenges lies in estate planning. You can create legal documents that protect your partner’s rights and your shared assets. Wills, powers of attorney, and healthcare directives give you the power to decide what happens if one of you is unable to make decisions or passes away.

Estate planning for unmarried couples can strengthen the bond between you and ensure your partner is provided for. You can leave a legacy that reflects your love and commitment, granting your partner the peace of mind they deserve.
