We look at guardianship through two lenses: Permanent and Temporary.
You've probably thought about permanent guardians before: who you want to raise your children for you if something happened tomorrow. This choice can be the hardest of the entire estate planning process. We can help make it a little easier by focusing in on the important virtues you would want from a long term guardian, how specifically to name them, and in what order.
You probably have not thought about temporary guardians. (If you have - kudos! You're great at adulting!) Here, let me help: What happens to your kids if you're in a car accident on date night and they're at home with the high school babysitter? Guess what - if you don't know, neither does the babysitter. Let's make a plan together to ensure that the people you know and trust are given the proper legal authority to care for your kids in a time of crisis so that a police officer doesn't make that choice for you.
