Choosing a Guardian for Your Minor Children
Step 5 – seek professional legal help immediately!
Recent studies show that up to 66% of Americans die without a valid will or trust.
However, roughly 100% of Americans mean to get around to it someday.
In choosing a Guardian, as with all Estate Planning, procrastination is by far your greatest enemy. Everyone thinks they will live well into their children’s adulthood. However, statistics prove that this is not always true.
If 66% of parents die without completing their Will or Trust, then this means that the vast majority of Guardianship proceedings take place without any input from the deceased parents.
Without having your Guardianship decisions in a legally valid format, the Judge will appoint a Guardian for your children without considering any of your wishes or beliefs.
