You may have a will or a full estate plan that was prepared by an attorney in another state, or perhaps you haven’t yet taken the important step of planning your estate.
People frequently hear that they should visit their attorney to have their wills and other important legal documents prepared, but many people procrastinate. Therefore, if you’re in that group, do not feel like you’re alone.
As it turns out, though, living wills and durable power of attorney for healthcare are two things that single people might especially want to give some thought to.
No matter what line of work you are in, estate planning has facets that apply to everyone, and it comes down to documenting wishes and avoiding probate and unnecessary taxes. Too many people put it off, but, in general, the sooner you do it, the better.
