 What Does Tenants By The Entireties Mean In Estate Planning?

 A special term used by some states when a husband and wife own property together.  No other parties can own a share, this must be between husband and wife.  When one spouse dies, that share will automatically pass to the survivor.  In some cases, holding property this way can provide special protection from creditors.
