Guardians & Conservators
One of the more difficult, yet crucial aspects of Life and Estate Planning is choosing a guardian for minor or adult dependent children. In the event of death or other absence of both natural parents, a court will be tasked with appointing a guardian to physically care for the children. A parent can preserve their wishes by nominating a guardian in their Will. If there isn’t a Trust to manage assets for the benefit of the children, a conservator will also be necessary for those financial issues.
