Proper estate planning is a must. Whether you are single or married, it is important to consider all aspects of your estate, and what estate planning documents would be appropriate in order to ensure that your wishes are fulfilled. These estate planning documents could include a Community Property Agreement, Will with possible consideration of an education and support trust for minor children, Durable Power of Attorney, Directive To Physicians, and other documents as may be appropriate.
By execution of appropriate estate planning documents, you may be assured that your spouse, children, family members, and other beneficiaries are properly provided for pursuant to your wishes. And in the event you should become physically or mentally incapacitated and unable to manage your medical and financial affairs, then an appropriate Durable Power of Attorney and other Directives are absolutely essential.
