Main - Estate Planning and the Single Person

Whether you have minor children, adult children or no children, estate planning for the single person can be daunting. Single people do not have that obvious trusted "other" who can step in when we are at our most vulnerable, care for our children, and distribute our assets after we pass away. It is vital for all single adults to have personalized advance health care directives and durable powers of attorney, to avoid lengthy and expensive court proceedings if they lose their mental capacity. It is also critical for single parents with minors to have a trust that protects their children's assets and provides for the needs.

Decide now who will take care of you and your money if you cannot.  Provide your loved ones with instructions for your health care and end of life decisions. Make affirmative choices about who gets your assets, and if you have few assets learn how to create an estate using insurance. In this informational presentation estate planning lawyer, Patricia De Fonte, of De Fonte Law PC, and financial advisor Flora Burke, of Merrill Lynch, will cover the major issues that single people need to address to protect themselves, care for their loved ones, and make the final distribution of their assets meaningful and organized.
