Married folks note: ‘The Demise of Dower – State Bar of Michigan’
January 9, 2017
Every year I give feedback to people AFTER there has been a life changing event in their family. I strongly recommend that everyone who buys/ sells/ marries/ has children, etc, seek a consultation asap with (at a minimum):
- Legal counselor
- Insurance agent
- Real estate/ tax consultant
- Estate planner
‘Dower rights’ have changed in MI. A widows automatic 1/3 interest in her husbands real estate will be altered in April of 2017.
