Essential Estate Planning Tools for Unmarried Partners

Domestic partners need to rely on trusts, not wills, to transfer property after the death of a partner. Wills are easier to contest. A blood relative may claim property despite a will.

Financial powers of attorney and medical powers of attorney are essential if the partners want to make decisions for each other. Without powers of attorney, a domestic partner has no legal standing. You will also need HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) medical release forms so that you have access to your partner's medical information when necessary.

Protect Your Partner & Protect Yourself

Who do you want making decisions for you if you cannot make them yourself? Who do you want to have your property? Talk to a Brighton domestic partner estate planning attorney at the Nawrocki Center. Make sure you have the documents and legal entities in place to meet your wishes.
