You have the primary responsibility for ensuring the well-being and care of your children. If something happens to you while they are minors, you want to ensure you’ve made the decision about who cares for them, and how.
Married with Children
You likely want your spouse making decisions for you if you are incapacitated, you probably want to make sure your assets go to your spouse when you die and then to your children after your spouse is gone.
If you are in a second (or third or more) marriage, and you have children from a prior marriage, you must engage in estate planning that will keep the people you love and are most important to you out of court and out of conflict.
Life Partners with or Without Children
Estate planning is extraordinarily important when you are not married but have a life partner. And if you have children together, it is critical for you to get your estate planning handled in the right way.
Those Without Children
Maybe you don’t have children, but you do have a spouse, partner, or other loved ones, and you want to ensure things are as easy for them as possible if and when something happens to you.
You love your family. You want to ensure things are as easy as possible for them, if and when something happens to you.
You show your love through acts of service. You want to pass on what you have worked so hard for your entire life and do it in a way that feels good and full of ease.
Your wealth isn’t measured just by the dollars in the bank, but by the well-being of the people you love.
You may be single, married, have children or not. The one common denominator is that you truly and deeply care about the people in your life and you want to make things as easy as possible for them, if and when something happens to you.
