Single Parents

Estate Planning You Can Trust.

As a single parent, 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.

In the most ideal scenario, your child’s other parent would be suitable to take custody of your child, if you cannot be there. But in many cases, that’s not possible, or desired.

And, even if it is, you may want to ensure that the financial resources you are leaving behind are cared for by someone other than your former spouse or partner.

No matter what the scenario, as a single parent (whether your child’s other parent is in the picture or not), you need to take the steps necessary to legally document who you would want raising your child, how you would want your child raised, and how you want your assets handled for your child, in case anything happens to you.

We know how important it is to single parents to care for and protect your children, this is why we have created the CAPE Toolkit (Children Are Protected in an Emergency).  Our CAPE Toolkit is a set of legal documents that will outline who you want to take care of your children in temporary and long-term situations, instructions to the caregivers regarding your wishes on how to care for your children, and medical power of attorneys for your minor children.

We know you are busy and promise to make the process as simple and easy for you as possible. To discuss what estate planning specifics suit your needs, you can click here to schedule a 20-minute free phone consultation; and if you’re ready to jump right in, you can click here to schedule a Planning Session.
