How can unmarried couples in Kent plan their estates?

As Kent residents may know, increasing numbers of people are living in committed relationships outside of marriage. Census data indicates that unmarried couples represent roughly 7 million American households. Today's non-marital households include young couples choosing to forego marriage, same sex couples, and seniors who are in late-in-life relationships following divorce or the death of a spouse. For partners in a committed non-marital relationship, the opportunities for avoiding probate afforded by legally recognized marriage are often not available, which makes thoughtful estate planning especially important.

Estate planning to preserve Kent businesses

Kent business owners know that building a successful company typically requires a major personal investment. Because of this, many Washingtonians regard it as a top priority to pass on the fruits of their labors to heirs. According to a recent survey, most business owners recognize that estate planning is crucial to prevent family disputes and to make sure that plans for business succession avoid the complexities of probate court. Nonetheless, business owners too often put off their estate planning for business succession until later in life, and that can be a mistake.

Can religious traditions be preserved in Seattle estate plans?

The Seattle area hosts a diverse population representing a wide variety of religious backgrounds. As upcoming generations face increasing exposure to a range of ideologies, parents may encounter concerns that their spiritual traditions will not be carried on by their children.
