My husband and I have been married for 23 years, have 2 children ages 16 and 19 and he has two children and grandchildren from a previous married ages 34 and 38. He has owned his own real estate business for 30 years and together we have joint ownership in some of of his properties but most of his property is sole ownership. He has had several medical issues and currently we do not have a Will. If something were to happen to him and we do not have a Will, what would happen to our assets. Also, if he decides to put a Will together, I have requested to be involved but he has made it clear that all decisions will be made by him. Does he have that right? I want to make sure that my children and I are provided for if something were to happen to him and that the step children are not entitled to claiming some of our assets. I have been employed for 38 years and have contributed financially to the marriage from medical bills, house payments and purchasing assets. By Minnesota State Law, what am I entitled to if he were to pass with no Will. Since my husband seems to want to be in charge of his Will, should I meet with an attorney to ensure my 401k, pension and retirement accounts go to my children?
