Flower commercials have been flooding TV and newspapers for a couple of weeks reminding us that Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 12th.
We’ve all seen the commercial for the insurance company where the actor thinks you should give a life insurance policy as a baby shower gift – well, she got booties instead!
However, the idea of being prepared in the event something happens to Mom and Dad is an excellent idea. Should something happen to Mom and Dad, you’ll want to ensure that your children are with legal guardians you choose and are being raised according to your wishes. Give Mom peace of mind on Mother’s Day by preparing a plan to take care of this.
We can help with a plan that includes:
Legal documents to name short-term guardians
Letters to those short-term guardians so the people you've named will know just what to do if called upon.
Instructions to everyone who takes care of your kids as to exactly what to do if you are in an accident … so there's never any question about who to call.
Legal documents to name long-term guardians
Letters to your long-term guardians letting them know what to do if called upon.
Instructions and guidelines for your long-term guardians on how you want your kids to be raised...make sure your kids are raised with your values, insights, stories and experience.
Medical powers of attorney for your minor children so the next time they travel without you or you travel without them; you know they'll get the medical care they need.
A custom, personalized I.D. card for your wallet stating that you have minor children at home and who should be contacted if you are in an accident.
