Estate Planning for families
We are all unique. Your childhood experiences were different than your best friend, your job duties are different, your family situations are different, and so on. It turns out we aren’t all the same, that’s why estate planning is an individualized process and can’t be accomplished with the standardized DIY tools found on the internet.
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.
Your wealth isn’t measured just by the dollars in the bank, but by the well-being of the people you love. To read up on the specifics of estate planning based on your situation, check out our detailed service listings here.
Choose a guardian for your child
No matter what your situation is, as a single parent you may wish to ensure that your child is taken care of by a guardian of your choice with instructions on how you wish your child should be raised if you are not there. At Colorado Wills and estates, we will discuss your options and help you implement your choice of who you would want to be the short-term and long-term guardians of your child.
You should also consider whether the same individual who cares for your child on a daily basis should also manage your financial resources you have set forth for your child’s care.
Our Guardian Choice Plan
At Colorado Wills and Estates, we have created a Guardian Choice Plan to help you select short-term and long-term guardians for your child so that your child does not end up in the temporary custody of a stranger or raised by someone appointed by a judge who will never know your wishes.
