Estate Planning Essentials | Estate Lawyers in Raleigh NC
Designating a Guardian – An untimely death can leave your children without a parent. It's important to select a guardian that can care for your children when you pass. This individual should be someone that you trust to raise your children as their own. They could make financial decisions for them, as well as other life decisions. Should you not designate a guardian for your children before unexpectedly passing, the court system may lack guidance for making arrangements for your child's care. They might end up with strangers or in foster care until a costly court hearing can rule differently.
Trusts – Those that have children need to consider a trust. Trusts are designed to properly care for your children after you've passed until they're of age or mature enough to care for themselves, financially.
No matter if you're married, single, wealthy, a parent, it's important for all adults to have an estate plan and the proper documents in place at the beginning of each year. If you're ready to begin planning your estate, contact our estate lawyers in Raleigh NC, today.
