If you are a parent of a minor child, your guardianship planning is probably the most important element of your estate plan. All parents want to ensure that their children are cared for by someone who loves them, will nurture them, and help raise them according to your values.
In California, a court proceeding is required to make the guardianship formal, even when there is an Estate Plan. I can help ease the process by representing the proposed guardians.
Important things to consider when choosing a guardian
Who else loves your children unconditionally?
Who will empower your children to live their best life?
Who has a family most like yours?
How is the health of your proposed guardian?
What is your proposed guardian's lifestyle like?
Is religion important? What is the nominee's religion?
What is the proposed guardian's family life like? Do they have a family who will welcome your child?
What did your proposed guardian say when you discussed nominating them as guardian?
