This is Janice and Joe. They have two kids, but they haven’t made a will or named a guardian. This is Mark and Mallory. They also have two kids, but they’ve named a legal guardian for their children in their will.
If tragic circumstances took Janice and Joe, the court would decide who their kids would live with. If an unfortunate accident took Mark and Mallory, their chosen guardian would step in immediately and take custody of their kids.
Don’t be like Janice and Joe – solidify guardianship for your children in your will as soon as possible, so you have a say in who would care for your kids if you suddenly couldn’t. Choose someone who would uphold your values, have the stability to take on raising your kids, and who would raise your children as their own.
