3 Talking Points to Help a Reluctant Spouse Come Around to Estate Planning
Before starting, recognize that the subject of death can create a lot of uncomfortable feelings. Then try these talking points intended to address common objections.

"Why do I need an estate plan now?" Estate planning is assets, as well as making important medical and financial decisions - and making your desires and wishes known.

"As my spouse, you inherit everything and make decisions for me anyway." Although the spouse is favored in California Probate law, that's not always the case. The spouse may need to share the estate with children or living parents and does not automatically get access to medical information or decision-making.

If all else fails, remind your spouse you already have an estate plan - the default plan created by the State of California called "probate." The process of probate is long, expensive and stressful. The good news is you can opt out by creating your own estate plan instead.
