Naming Separate Guardians For Your Children in North Carolina


As a Charlotte Estate Planning attorney, I work with parents all the time to make certain their minor children will be protected if the death or incapacity of one or both parents should occur.

One of the ways we do this is to name guardians, who are essentially the people with legal permission to take custody of your children if tragedy strikes.

This is not always an easy decision to make for many reasons. However, this should not be the reason that keeps you from speaking with a Charlotte Estate Planning attorney to put your estate in order. Your estate planning attorney can offer suggestions on what to think about and provide you with pros and cons to specific people you may be thinking about naming. An experienced and caring Charlotte estate planning attorney will be able to guide you in naming the most appropriate person for your particular situation and for your family.
