Moms and Dads in the original relationship that brought their darling boys and girls into the world. Whether you were married or are a common law couple (you might be and not even know it!), you probably have questions about what would happen to your kids if something happened to you.
Moms and Dads living on their own have special needs when it comes to protecting their kids and providing for them. Whether there’s a co-parent or not, single parents should take the time to understand what could happen in an emergency. We can give you the information you need to make sure you’re comfortable with your plans.
