Keep Your Guardianship Up
Selecting a guardian for minor children is an important step all parents should take. But over the course of a minor child’s life it is not uncommon for the circumstances that led to the selection of the original guardian to change. Families or guardians can move far apart, problems with health can occur, financial circumstance can change or there can simply be a falling out. To ensure minor children are placed under the guardianship of the best suited person, parents should occasionally remind themselves who would look after their children if needed and update their wills to reflect any change in desired guardians. A change to the selection of guardian can easily be made as a codicil to an existing will.
