Marietta Estate Planning in the Comfort of Your Home

Wills Covering Unborn Children

In the last year or so, I’ve reviewed wills for several young couples who had recently had a second child. They wanted to make sure their wills covered their new children. Surprisingly, most wills didn’t. I don’t know why lawyers would draft wills that don’t cover future children, especially for young couples who are almost certain to have more kids. Is it so the lawyers will get additional fees when the couples need their estate plan updated? Or am I missing something?

Whether you use me or someone else for your Georgia estate planning needs, you should ask the attorney to make sure the will covers all your future kids, even if you aren’t sure you whether you’ll need those provisions. It’s easy to do and will save you time and money in the future.
