How Estate Planning Secures Your Children’s Upbringing
Your children are precious, and their upbringing is of the utmost importance. Having proper estate planning in place will allow you to determine a suitable legal guardian for children in the event of your passing.
WHAT HAPPENS IF NO ESTATE PLAN IS IN PLACE?
In the event of adults passing and leaving behind minor children with no estate plan, the courts decide their futures. Unfortunately, this means that a judge is given the responsibility of deciding who will take care of the children. You, the parent, and not a judge, are the person best suited to provide for your children’s care.
HOW ESTATE PLANNING CAN HELP
To avoid this situation, you can set up an estate plan to name legal guardians for your children. This puts the power in your hands, and you can decide who you would like to raise your minor children in the unlikely, yet possible event of your passing. You can also include a letter of instruction which gives directives to your chosen guardian on how you wish your child to be raised and your educational goals for them.
