Estate Planning for Single and Divorced Women with Living Trusts
Wednesday, April 25 at 7pm
If you are single with no dependents, estate planning is important. If you own property of any kind, you need to have a Will prepared to ensure that it will be distributed as you wish without placing the burden of distributing your property onto someone who may not understand your values or desires. The more assets you accumulate over the years, the greater the need for a testamentary document of some kind. When there are no children involved, a single person can often engage in a significant amount of charitable giving through a wisely constructed estate plan. It is also important to have someone named to take action concerning your health issues as you age, or become incapacitated. It is important to have these items addressed to avoid any crisis management.
Whether currently divorced, in the process or planning, divorce is a traumatic experience. Divorce is still challenging emotionally, spiritually and financially. It is imperative for women to seek the advice of experienced professionals for guidance through this life-changing event. Estate planning also provides guidance on asset protection and other financial issues which arise as a consequence of divorce. Kiselstein Franckowiak Law Group is willing to work together, with you, or your family law attorney, to provide the best plan for you, and your children and the responsibility of caring for them in your absence. With proper planning, one can make a fresh start and begin a new life.
