Single Estate Planning (with children)

Estate planning involves documents that will protect and provide for you and your loved ones.

Commonly, estate planning is associated with multi-generational, large, traditional families; but estate planning for singles, or those in non-traditional partnerships is just as important, if not more so.

Frequently Asked Questions

If I have full custody of my child and have nominated a Guardian, and something happens to me, will the other parent or the Guardian I nominated gain custody?

If the other parent is fit, the court will likely award custody to the other parent over your nomination.

Should I name my minor children as a beneficiary?

We will be happy to discuss better strategies for your life insurance policies and other assets you may wish to pass to your minor (eventually adult) children.
