Appointing guardians in a Will
One of the most important considerations in drafting your will is determining who will serve as guardian for your minor children. In practice, if one of the parents dies, the surviving parent would remain responsible for the children. There are likely to be complications if both parents were to die together.
If you do not have a Will in that situation, the court decides who will be given custody of your children after your death. Guardians are responsible for a child’s health, education, and other daily needs.
