A guardianship appointment is the parent’s opportunity to dictate who will be responsible for raising their children in the event the child’s parents pass away.
A person may dictate who will be the guardian, but the court has final say on the matter and may disqualify the guardian in certain circumstances. It is best to have 2-3 alternates named in the event your top choice is not available to serve as a guardian.
A guardianship appointment is a necessary part of your estate plan if you have minor children (or will have minor children) and is vitally important to have in place.
