Should gay unmarried couples who wish to name each other as executor in their wills, etc use terms such as “partner” or “life partner?”

 

Name your personal representative  or Executor in your Will; your relationship to the person is irrelevant. Be sure to properly identify him/her, including address and contact information. Prepare a living will (health proxy) to identify who can make end-of-life medical decisions in the event you are incapacitated. Have a power of attorney drawn up too. All of these documents can be prepared quickly by a good lawyer, and you will have peace of mind.

Estate Planning documents should be reviewed periodically and updates, as changes in circumstances require.

If you are contemplating having a will or living will prepared, please contact Matta Law office for a free consultation.
