Estate Planning Help For Young Families

Every parent understands the tremendous responsibility of caring for their children and planning for their futures. But have you thought about what would happen should unforeseen circumstances arise?

You are never too young for estate planning.

If you and your partner are no longer able to care for your children, a well-advised estate plan will lay out your wishes and address critical issues regarding guardianship, your assets and health care decisions. Too often, families without such a plan in place face confusion, endure lengthy court proceedings or become divided over who should care for the children. We can help by addressing these difficult questions with you now, and if necessary, ensure that your decisions are carried out.

Our Young Family Estate Plan is available to individuals under 40 years of age with combined assets of less than $500,000 and includes the following, for $695:

  • Basic wills and probate avoidance
  • Powers of attorney
  • Living wills
