We have all read the tragic stories of parents dying too soon and leaving minor children behind. The stories are heart-wrenching and the reality for the children is worse.
But did you know that most parents have not named a guardian to care for their children in the event something happens to them?
If you are one of the 69% of parents who have not yet named guardians for your children, ask yourself these simple questions:
Young families have unique planning needs that are often overlooked in traditional estate planning. Traditional plans only name permanent guardians for minor children, not protecting them from a stay with Child Protective Services if something happens to you and the authorities must be called.
Traditional plans also do not protect your children from the court appointing someone you do not want to raise your children.
Fortunately, there are a number of easy steps you can take immediately to protect your children and your assets. Our unique SafeGuard™ For Kids plan is about protecting you, your assets and your family in the event of your death or incapacity, with a special emphasis on the needs of families with minor children.
SafeGuard™ For Kids is also an excellent option for families who have special needs children.
At The Chubb Law Firm we are experts in planning for young families and recognize the importance of modern planning for the care of minor children.
