If you are the parent of a special needs child, you face unique estate planning considerations. While estate planning is important for everyone, you face additional responsibilities, because it is up to you to create a plan that outlines who is to care for your disabled child and how if you are unable to do so.
After you pass away, your physical presence is missed by your loved ones who are left mourning your loss. Often they will spend time looking at your old photos to remember you or see an item of yours they inherited and think of you fondly. But what happens to your digital presence after you die? How does that factor into the way you are remembered?
When planning for the future, there are many different scenarios to consider. One important piece of any estate plan is your wishes if you were to become incapacitated or unable to make decisions for yourself any longer. Your will can state your wishes on some of these matters, but you can also appoint a guardian to make medical or financial decisions for you.
