Most parents of young kids have given some thought to the question "What would happen to my children if something happened to me?" It is a scary and overwhelming prospect, so much so that many people put it in the back of their minds to make it go away. But, like many things in life, ignoring something stressful often compounds the problem rather than solves it. It's our philosophy that creating a plan is always better than no plan at all.
But, where to start? Square one, of course! And square one from an estate planning perspective involves nominating short term guardians.
In this in-depth conversation with James Grace of Silver Pine Capital and Daniel James of Canopy, Amanda discusses why short term guardians are an essential piece of an estate plan for any family with minor children.
