Estate Planning for Single Individuals

Individuals that are not married encounter different issues when considering estate planning. If a single person dies without a will, then their property is distributed according to the laws of the state. Therefore, a single person needs to consider who will inherit their property. Likewise, it is important for a single person to provide a power of attorney to someone to make financial and medical decisions in the event of incapacity. It is just as important, if not more so for a single person to make an estate plan. If you need assistance with estate planning, call the Criss & Rousseau Law Firm.

Estate Planning For LGBT Couples

Regardless of your familial structure or marital status, estate planning is something every person needs to consider. However, the rules are complicated, and changing, for LGBT couples. LGBTCriss-Rousseau-Law-Firm-LLP-Red-Background-1--150x150.jpg couples in Texas do not have the legal protections and advantages afforded by marriage, and should consider a few key documents in estate planning. The Criss & Rousseau Law Firm strongly recommends considering the following documents: a will, living will, living trust (where appropriate), power of attorney, and final arrangement documents.
