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.
