The Importance of parental guardianship

Would you leave your child with a stranger? Of course you wouldn’t! So why would you leave their future to chance?

In the event of the death of both parents, if you have you do not have a Will with an appointed Guardian, the future of your minor children will be left in the hands of the Family Courts...

It might be a scenario you don’t want to think about, but it is something that you need to prepare for! When having your Will drafted you need to think of every possible outcome, even the most daunting ones. The repercussions could put even more emotional strain on your children and family.

It is imperative that you consider the following when thinking about appointing a Guardian in your Will:

  • You should ensure that those persons you would want to bring up your children are willing to do so.
  • You should make financial provision for your children to enable their Guardians to raise them.
  • It is best to consider the age of the Guardians and to appoint two.

Don’t leave the future of your children in the hands of someone else! By planning all possible eventualities, you would be providing peace of mind for you and your family members.
