Think Of Your Children
One of the most important aspects of drawing up a will for parents of young children is appointing a “guardian” to raise the children if both parents were to die before the children reach adult age. Failure to prepare for the eventuality presents possible ramifications that are far too great to dismiss. If a guardian is not named, the judge would appoint a guardian without knowing whom the deceased parent(s) would have preferred. Naming a guardian in a will does not guarantee that the person named will be chosen, however, as long as a Guardian ad Litem approves the nomination, the judge is quite likely to respect the deceased’s wishes.
