If you’re like most parents I know, the “To-Do” list below is going to be a little tough to tackle in the midst of Back To School craziness but I hope you’ll take a look and consider checking a few things off when you have time. You’ll gain peace of mind while you confirm that your financial house is in order.
Making a decision about who would raise your children if something happened to you can be puzzling and even dramatic—especially for a married couple trying to agree on potential guardians. Rest assured, you know your children better than anyone and you’re uniquely qualified to make the decision in a way no one else is—not even a judge. So before you throw your arms up with an “I have no idea who to pick!” here’s a method to come to a decision that you can live with. REMEMBER: guardian nominations can be changed and should be changed over time as your children grow and their needs change. Don’t be afraid to make a decision and then change it later. That’s the natural progression of childhood in operation.
Does this kid looks like he needs a special kind of guardian? Oh yeah.
