It’s important for parents of young children to think about estate planning. No one can predict the future, therefore it’s helpful to plan for someone to look after your children in the event anything should happen that would render you unable to care for them. Designating a guardian in the event of your death or incapacity is an important part of estate planning. It is also important to discuss your intentions with the designated guardian and/or an alternate guardian, along with family members. Creating a Will and a Standby Custodian Designation is critical for any parents of minor children, even if they have no other estate planning in place. Attorney Jason Lee discusses estate planning for parents of young children in this interview on KDUZ 1260 AM’s show “Legal Update.”
