Tips for Updating Your Estate Plan From Our Raleigh Child Custody Lawyer
Have you just endured a child custody battle and now need to update your estate plan? If so, our Raleigh child custody lawyer is here to help. This type of situation can get tricky. If you have underaged children and would like to name a new guardian for them, you might not want to name their other parent. That is okay, you have the right to name anyone you’d like.
Just remember, guardianship doesn’t come into play if your child has a living parent at the time of your death. The guardian only takes over when both parents are deceased. Still, it’s important to name a guardian, no matter what the situation might be at the time of your death.
When choosing a guardian, consider the needs of your child or children. Who are they closest with? Who do they spend time with? Would you want to keep your children together or separate them by naming multiple guardians - one for each child?
Even if you are happily married, choosing a guardian for your children is hard. It’s sad and difficult to think about. Doing so will be overwhelming but it will also ensure that your children will be taken care of should both you and your spouse pass in an untimely death.
