You need to appoint someone you trust to take care of them, as well as a contingent if, for some reason, your first choice is unable to fulfill their obligations.
Guardianship is a huge undertaking that shouldn’t be agreed to lightly. You must discuss this with your desired guardian – and contingent guardian – beforehand so that they know what your wishes are.
Wills and trusts allow you to spell out the potential guardian(s) you have chosen for your children, as well as your wishes and desires for the children’s lives and futures.
Again, without an appointed guardian in place, the state will select one for you.
That’s why it is essential to have Diamond Estate Planning Law help you establish your choice of guardian in your will or trust.
