You have a lovely home, a well-paying job and two beautiful kids. They are the apples of your eyes and are well-adjusted, happy children. Both are enrolled in the local school, and enjoy the new school year, each year.
However, all may not be well when it comes to this happy picture. Have you ever thought about what could happen to your children if you were involved in an accident? Did you know that if you were ever in an accident your kids could be taken into protective custody, till the police figure out who has the legal authority to take them? And this could happen even if you’ve named legal guardians in your will.
So, what should you, as parents, do? Well, it’s simple – contact your trusted lawyer and set up a Comprehensive Kids Protection Plan. This plan will ensure that your kids are not taken into the custody of strangers for even a minute. Besides this, you must also put in place a well-considered estate plan, so that your assets are immediately and privately available to your loved ones.
A Kids Protection Plan should provide clear instructions to your children’s babysitters, day care providers, teachers and school administrators, detailing the people to call in case of an emergency. By providing these instructions your children’s caretakers know that they should not call the police until your children are safely in the hands of someone who has the clear authority to care for them in the event of your absence.
To prepare for what can happen to you in case of an accident, you can plan ahead to ensure that your family is cared for in case of an emergency. When you meet your lawyer you can ensure the following:
- Choose the right guardians for your kids and avoid making the common mistakes that most families make when naming legal guardians.
- Protect the money you leave behind from lawsuits, mistakes and divorce.
- Discover how to leave your loved ones a gift far greater than your money.
- Ensure that your family never has to see the inside of a courtroom, if anything were to happen to you.
So, now you know why it is so imperative to come up with both a Kid’s Protection Plan, as well as an Estate Plan. Both are absolutely essential to ensure that you are looking out for your children in case of any untoward event or accident.
