Guardianship for your Children
In the event of something unfortunate happening to you and your partner, who will you entrust the care of your children to ? and how best to incorporate this into your Will
As Legacy Planners, this is not an easy question to answer. As you're likely to feel an emotional response to this question, it's important that you consider making plans for your children's future should you both die.
Having plans in place will not only be in the best interests of your children, but it will also give you peace of mind knowing that you've put your children first.
You may name anyone you wish as guardian for your child as long as they are 18 or older. It could be a family member, close friend or anyone else you feel is appropriate to look after your child in the event of your untimely passing.You may name more than one guardian and often it's useful to do so in case your chosen guardian is unable or unwilling to act.
What is a legal guardian ?
A legal guardian is someone who has the legal authority to take care of your children should anything happen to you.
Guardians are responsible for taking all parenting decisions and may also be responsible for handling a child’s estate and legacy.
