You Need More Than A Will To Ensure Proper Care Of Your Kids If Something Were To Happen To You!

If you have kids that are minors, they are going to need a lot of help growing up. A well-established estate plan ensures that no matter what happens, your children will be taken care of. They will be taken care of by the people you chose, and in the way that you desire.

Whether your children are newborn, nearing adulthood, or have special needs, we can help you create a plan to ensure they NEVER have to go without a loving caregiver.

Here’s What Can Happen To Your Children Without Proper Planning

  • ​If there are no surviving parents of the children they are oftentimes placed in the custody of unfamiliar people… Strangers. Even after parents have drafted a will it can be some time before authorities determine where the children should be placed.
  • Custody could be granted to a person you would have NEVER wanted to care for your children. There may be a family member or relative that appears to have the best intentions but are not where you would want your children to be.
  • ​Your children’s future will be determined by a judge… One who knows very little about you or your family.
  • Disputes arise among family members fighting over guardianship of a child. This makes for a tiring custody battle in court.
  • ​If your estate enters probate you can lose as much as 5% of your asset value in court costs and other legal fees and delay the disbursement of your property. This affects what’s passed on to your children and how quickly they get it.

​The truth is… A lot of estate planning attorneys don’t foreshadow these issues. They aren’t often considering what is best for your children or their care.

The First Thing You Need Is A Kids Protection Plan

  • A Kids Protection Plan is basically a set of instructions or legal documents that can be referenced if a child’s parents were to suddenly pass. These are instructions that you can keep in a safe place or with another person or keep in your wallet for faster reference.
  • If you’re in an accident the Kids Protection Plan will help quickly inform authorities of your plan for your children. This helps ensure your children are never taken into the custody of a stranger, Child Protective Services, or anyone else who you would not want your children with. Your children’s future doesn’t have to be determined by a judge.

You can name legal guardians for free… Within minutes.
