KIDS PROTECTION PLAN
Caring for Your Children When Accidents Happen
If you have a family with young children, then you need to make sure that you plan for their well-being if something happens to you and your spouse. You may have already created a will or trust, yet this may not be enough to guarantee that your children are taken care of by the person of your choosing. Many estate planning attorneys do not take your family into consideration, but only plan for the future of your assets.
If you don't plan in advance, then a number of unfavorable situations could occur:
- Your children could be given to Child Protective Services. Even if this is a temporary situation, you don't want your children to be surrounded by strangers, no matter how short the time period may be.
- Your children may be caught in the midst of a custody battle among family members. A judge who isn't aware of your personal feelings may grant custody to someone that you would never want to raise your children.
- Your children may lose out of the assets that you've left them. If your estate has to go through probate, then your children will be deprived of money that has gone to court fees.
Make sure that you are fully-prepared so that these situations don't happen. Create a Kids Protection Plan that will ensure that your kids are safe and in custody of a person that you personally selected! Get started by contacting our firm.
