Choosing a Guardian #1 – Communicate with Your Spouse

Choosing a Guardian for Your Minor Children

Step 1 – Communicating with Your Spouse

This may seem obvious at first, but it can take longer than you expect to arrive at a mutually agreeable decision. It’s easier to decide how to distribute the financial and real property assets of your estate than it is to select a Guardian.

Take as much time as you need to discuss this decision openly with your spouse so that you are happy with your choice.

If you are having difficulty agreeing on the right Guardian, we invite you to consult with a Guardianship Attorney at Ainer & Fraker to talk through your options.  We have helped hundreds of families come to the very best decisions on the right Guardian for their children.

We know we can help your family as well.
