Married spouses should both have their own, separate Wills and other related legal documents ("Legal Documents"), even if both sets of Legal Documents say almost the same thing.
It's very common for a husband and wife to work with the same attorney or law firm to assist them in preparation of their Legal Documents, but there are a few ethical considerations a prudent attorney will share with both spouses before getting started. If you and your spouse work with WillCounsel to prepare your Legal Documents, the statements below would apply to the attorney-client relationship.
It is important that you understand that, because WillCounsel will be representing both spouses, you and your spouse are considered WillCounsel's client, collectively. Ethical considerations prohibit WillCounsel from agreeing with either of you to withhold information from the other. Accordingly, in agreeing to this form of legal representation, each of you is authorizing WillCounsel to disclose to the other any matters related to the representation that one of you might discuss with WillCounsel or that WillCounsel might acquire from any other source. In this representation, WillCounsel will not give legal advice to either of you or make any changes in any of your legal documents without your mutual knowledge and consent. Of course, if you become a WillCounsel client, anything either of you discusses with a WillCounsel attorney is privileged from disclosure to third parties, except (a) with your consent, (b) for communication with other advisors, or (c) as otherwise required or permitted by law or the rules governing professional conduct.
If actual conflicts of interest do arise between you, of such a nature that in WillCounsel's judgment it is impossible for WillCounsel to perform the firm's ethical obligations to both of you, it would become necessary for WillCounsel to cease acting as your joint attorney.
