How Can Estate Planning Benefit Unmarried Couples?
Some of the benefits of a domestic partnership include the ability to have your partner make medical decisions for you when you are unable to make them for yourself, and for your property to pass to your partner in the same way it would to a spouse. These same benefits can be achieved through careful estate planning. I can educate you about your options.
