Our team has the right experience to help you file for guardianship to protect your children in the event of your passing.
If someone is unable to make legal decisions for themselves, the court will usually appoint another person to make these decisions on their behalf. The legal term for this is guardianship, and it can be invoked in a number of different scenarios. For instance, if a child’s parents are no longer able to care for them, a guardian will be appointed to fulfill that role. If you are a parent and you want to ensure that your children go to someone you trust in the event of your passing, our team at the Law Office of Janice V. Coulter recommends establishing guardianship sooner rather than later. To do that, you’ll need the help of experienced attorneys like ourselves, so we encourage you to give us a call when you are ready to begin this legal action.
Our team understands that no one enjoys thinking about these kinds of worst-case scenarios, but we also know that it’s better to be prepared just in case. One of the best things you can do for your children’s future and your own peace of mind is to establish guardianship for them. If you should pass away suddenly without naming a guardian, that decision will be left to the court. In order to make sure that your children will be cared for by someone you trust to provide for them and respect your wishes for their care, you will need to get this paperwork squared away.
