By Rebecca L. Matthias, Attorney at Law
Many young parents believe the misconception that estate planning is only necessary for the elderly, not realizing the importance of setting up proper planning for their children in the unfortunate event something happens to them. As a result, the majority of parents have not named legal guardians for their minor children, and those who have named legal guardians in their estate plan have made at least one mistake in naming a guardian. If you are a parent, you need to name a legal guardian for your children, being mindful to avoid the following common mistakes.
Rebecca was a delight to work with. Very knowledgeable, thorough, fast turn-around, good guidance, helpful interpretation of alternatives, very fairly priced. Much better than the large firm we used originally.
