Parents of Minor Children
If you are a parent of minor children, it is very important that your Estate Plan include documents and a process that will ensure your kids will be cared for by people you want and in the way you want.
A proper Estate Plan for parents with minor children or dependents with special needs answers the critical question:
What will happen to our kids if we don’t come home?
In the event tragedy strikes, a proper Estate Plan will ensure that your children are cared for by people you chose and not chosen by a judge who does not know the intricacies of your family life. We can give you the peace of mind of knowing that your children are protected in the event of incapacity or death.
Some critical pieces included in your Estate Plan to protect your children include:
Protect Your Minor Children
Make sure that your minor children are protected in the event of an emergency. For parents with young children, planning often centers on protecting the well-being of your children. Planning for the possibility of a future without you in it may be the most important thing you can do should there be a tragedy. Contact the team at Legal Norcal to discuss your options.
Choose a Guardian for Your Children
It is important you choose a guardian for your children in advance.
If parents do not choose a guardian for their children in advance, conflicts can arise.
A court may be tasked with making this decision and it may not be what the parents would have wanted. This can be expensive, traumatic and a long process.
Estate Planning Can Protect Minor Beneficiaries
Estate planning with children includes extra challenges. You want to ensure that minors are protected and receive whatever you intend to leave behind for them. This is where working with an attorney becomes essential.
It is important that your planning remain private in order to avoid criminals and predators from preying on your grieving loved ones.
