Singles need estate planning and probate help too

People who are not married or those who do not have kids are significantly less likely to think about the legal steps they may need to take to protect their future interests. Texas singles can also benefit from careful planning, and they may also need to seek assistance with estate planning and probate matters. A few simple steps can help a person avoid complications in the future. 

One of the most important estate planning steps a person can take is to draft a basic will. This allows a person to decide what will happen to his or her stuff, outline how assets are to be distributed and even plan for the care of a beloved pet. However, there are benefits to drafting certain documents that allow singles to plan for care they may need in the future. 

Through a living will, a person can outline what types of medical care he or she may want in case of incapacitation. These documents can address issues like being kept on a ventilator, approval for certain life-saving surgeries and even organ donation. By drafting a health care power of attorney, a single adult can appoint a person to act on his or her behalf in matters not outlined in a living will. 

The steps a person should take to complete an estate plan depend on individual needs, objectives and other factors. A complete evaluation of the individual situation can help a single adult understand what he or she needs for full protection. It may help to discuss concerns with an experienced Texas estate planning and probate attorney
