As you’re drafting a will, the question will arise about arrangements for your dependent or minor children. If you have dependent or minor children when you pass, a guardian should be appointed by your will. This guardian may care for your children in the event that no parent survives them.
Choosing a Guardian | Estate Lawyers in Raleigh NC
It’s important to include a guardian in your will for dependent or minor children, even if you feel that the child’s other parent will be alive and well, long after you’re gone. It’s impossible to know what might happen. Making sure you choose and appoint a guardian to take care of your children when you pass may be one of the most important things you do for them.
