This next podcast in the estate planning series covers making a will to ensure your wishes are respected and enacted upon following your passing.

Key Takeaways

  • Unmarried couples have no right to any of the estate if there is no will.

  • A will is essential to mitigate a potential inheritance tax liability.

  • Separated spouses still not yet divorced continue to have rights to the deceased estate.

  • Jointly owned properties and possessions can be a way of protecting your spouse, allowing them to have access to joint bank accounts, for instance, before the estate is settled.
