Emily Rozwadowski Law provides comprehensive and effective estate planning for families and individuals.
Don’t automatically go for a couple. What would happen if one of the people in a couple died or if the couple got a divorce? You also want to consider if your child will fit into the family or get lost in the shuffle.
Consider the values of the potential guardians. This can include religious and political values, parenting style, and views about education.
Take age and health of the potential guardians into account.
Take finances and family life into account. Does the potential guardian have a good job? Do they travel a lot? Do they get along with others in the family?
Consider splitting up the different tasks. You can name one person to oversee finances and another person to be in charge of the day-to-day childrearing.
Name someone you trust to manage your affairs the way you want and that is reliable.
Name someone who lives reasonably close to you.
