It can be challenging for those with non-traditional next of kin relationships when it comes to planning a funeral at a funeral home in Orange Park, FL. The most common non-traditional relationships are same-sex couples, Common Law marriages, and separated but still married couples.
These days, most states have a process in place for getting around difficulties with next of kin relationships. Depending on the state, there is usually a form that people can fill out, sign and file to give a specific person the responsibility of all death-related decisions. This form allows you to choose who you want to make your funeral arrangements and is valid at the vast majority of licensed funeral homes and cremation providers. Be sure to look into the specificities of your state law or reach out to a lawyer for the most up-to-date information and guidance. This way you will be as prepared as possible.
Though our laws and perceptions of what it means to be a family are becoming more inclusive, these families might need to take a few extra steps.
