Protect your children’s wellbeing by naming the right guardian.
It is hard to think about not being there to care for and raise your children. But this is an unfortunate possibility, and a sudden accident or serious illness could leave your children in the care of someone else. If this ever happens, you want their caretaker to be someone who will raise them as you would and provide them with a caring, loving environment.
If you don’t address guardianship as part of your estate plan, you risk the state deciding who will care for your children in the event of your death. A good estate plan gives you the opportunity to name your preferred guardian(s) and ensure your children are well cared for.
Working with an attorney on your guardianship plan can ensure the validity of this legal process and secure your peace of mind. Choosing a guardian is not something to take lightly, and I recognize the gravity of this decision. As your attorney, I will provide catered, individualized guidance to help you make a beneficial choice and put all the necessary legal paperwork into place. I have helped many families in Durham, North Carolina with this process, and I welcome the opportunity to do the same for you.
Establishing guardianship is just one aspect of creating your estate, and I can help you institute other measures for protecting your children, your family, your assets, and your peace of mind.
