Preneed Guardian

If you die without a will and have minor children, the child(ren)’s other biological parent will almost always get custody of the minor child(ren), absent some proof that the other biological parent is unfit or incapacitated. If, for whatever reason, the other biological parent is not an option, then the courts will consider almost anyone who comes forward wanting to take guardianship of the child(ren) and make a decision regarding guardianship based on the best interests of the child(ren).

Factors to consider when choosing a personal guardian for minor child(ren)

  • Shared values (religious affiliation, educational philosophy, child-rearing philosophy)
  • Character
  • Financial stability
  • Longevity (emotional and physical health)
  • Location (whether the chil(ren) have to relocate)
  • Encouragement of continued relationships with other family and friends
  • Who the child(ren) is comfortable with
  • Whether the potential guardian(s) have other children
  • Think outside the box to non-immediate family members, or friends instead of family

Jennifer was recommended to me from a friend for my child’s parenting plan and child support case. Jennifer and her staff were wonderful to work with. They always had my best interest at heart but also upfront on the reality of how parenting plans work. She walked me through each step and fought for me where she needed to and talked to me about agreeing when needed. I would recommend Jennifer to family and friends! Going through a split is a very emotional time and she kept the level head for me when I could not.
