There is no easy answer to this question in a brief paragraph, but for most people a Living Trust is a better option for long term protection; whether you are single, have a partner, are married, and perhaps also have a child or children. A Living Trust provides greater flexibility for future changes in one’s life to be incorporated in to your Estate Plan; changes such as financial growth, family issues, inheritance, and the like. An initial appointment to explore your Estate Planning needs is free of charge, and this will give us the opportunity to explore what is best in detail. So please contact me to set up an appointment, I look forward to hearing from you.
