Choosing A Guardian? Some Questions to Consider…

For parents of minor children, determining who to appoint as Guardian is possibly the toughest Estate Planning decision you’ll make. Some questions to consider:
1 – What are the existing family dynamics of the Guardian and how do your children fit in?
2 – Are they financially capable of caring for your children?
3 – Do the Guardian’s views and values align with yours?
4 – What is the impact to the Guardian’s lifestyle? To your children’s lifestyle?
It’s important to include your reasons for selecting your Guardian in your Estate Plan to help minimize potential conflict. Even better, be sure to discuss your Guardian choice with your family, including your children if they’re old enough to make their feelings known.
