Single Moms Need an Estate Plan
Imagine: You’re a single mom who works hard day in and day out to provide an incredible life for yourself and your children. But, one day you are involved in a horrible car crash and die instantly.
Although you had a list of people who would care for your kids (in your mind), you never discussed the issue with anyone or asked if they were even financially able or emotionally invested in caring for your kids. And you certainly didn’t write it down!
When you pass, your kids go to their mostly-absent father, your unreliable mother 👩🏻🦳, or worst-case scenario, your kids became wards of the state. It’s sad, and it tugs at your heartstrings, but the fact of the matter is that the situation could have been prevented if only you had planned ahead to secure your kids’ future!
A wills and trust (or estate planning) attorney like me can help you plan ahead. I can help you designate who you’d want or wouldn’t want to be appointed as a guardian for your children, and help you set up a will or a trust to provide for your kids. Setting up a trust ensures that your hard-earned money takes care of your kids and doesn’t get squandered by terrible family members! Do you have a list of family members you wouldn’t want your kids to end up with? Indicate their relationship below (c’mon, no names)!
At Ibekwe Law, we can help you navigate sticky situations. Here is what one of our happy clients stated:
“As a single parent, there is nothing more assuring than to know they’re taken care of. I couldn’t imagine anyone doing as good of a job. She truly cares about the families that she works with, and that was evident every step of the way. If there’s any legal needs for your family, call Iffy today, you won’t regret it!”
