You Die, What Happens to the Children?

Once more I am posting an article about guardianships. This time from Massachusetts Estate Planning and Elder Law Blog. See, this problem is not one limited to Indiana or to Michael Jackson's children. I do like the point made in What to Do When You Can't Decide

By not choosing a guardian of your children you are deciding that a judge is really the best person to decide what will happen to your children, and any money that they inherit, if you pass away. (If you can't think of anyone to name as guardian, go read this great post

by Oregon Attorney Candice Aiston.) Which family members would step up to take that role? Is it someone you want? Then name them. Is it someone you don't want? Then name someone else.
If you want more information about guardianships, please give me a call at 765-641-7906.
