Who Will Care for Your Children if You Cannot?The pandemic may have made you think about things that you should do, even if you have previously put them off. This brings to mine a story of a colleague. She left her kids with the babysitter to enjoy a night out with her husband. But she couldn’t stop thinking about what would happen to her kids if she and her husband were in an auto accident. What would happen? Even though she’s a lawyer and had nominated guardians for her kids, she still was uncomfortable. Her Will naming the guardians was in her safe and who had access to that safe? Her named legal guardians lived thousands of miles away. That thought spurred her to take action for herself and for other families. If you’d like to read the book she wrote discussing her discoveries, it’s called “Wear Clean Underwear: A Fast, Fun, Friendly—and Essential—Guide to Legal Planning for Busy Parents.” It’s the best selling book on legal planning for families. If you would like a copy, please contacts with your email and we will email a digital version to you at no cost to you. One thing you will discover from the book is that sometimes naming legal guardians if not enough to keep your kids out the foster care system, or out of the care of the wrong relative.
