For busy couples raising a family, taking time to consider ‘who gets the kids’ is the last thing on the to-do list. In fact, 65% of Americans have nothing in writing regarding the care of their children and distribution of assets upon their passing. Simply put, they do not have a will.
If you have minor children, a will is a must. With this document you can name your children’s legal guardian should you pass before they are of legal age. Without a will, a court will make these decisions on your behalf.
No one is planning to die in the near future, which is why the conversation about naming guardians for your children gets put off. Have that conversation and create a will to ensure that your belongings and most treasured possession, your children, are in good hands.
