An Estate Plan Allows You to Make Arrangements for Your Minor Children
No one wants to think about passing away and leaving their children without parents. However, this is a situation you must plan for, even if it is uncomfortable.
We Help You Name Guardians and Fiduciaries for Your Minor Children
We can help walk you through the process of naming a guardian and fiduciaries if something occurs that takes the lives of both you and their other parent.
If you do not put this type of legal plan in place, the decision will fall to the court system. A judge who knows little about your family and even less about how you want to raise your children will name someone to serve as their guardian, to raise them, and to make decisions about their education, medical care, and general well-being.
The judge will try to rule in the best interest of your children, but the bottom line is that you know best. You have all the facts and know both your children and your family or friends who might raise them.
We Help You Have Difficult Conversations
We know this is not an easy conversation to have or an easy choice to make. We will walk you through the process of creating an estate plan for your minor children step-by-step.
Our attorneys design the legal documents that would help your children make a smooth transition into their new home in the hours after your untimely death and keep them safe and healthy in the years that follow. Hopefully, you never need this plan, but knowing it is there if you do should offer you peace of mind.
Estate Plans as Unique as Your Family and Your Situation
We understand there is no one-size-fits-all estate planning strategy. We work closely with you to create the best possible estate plan based on your family’s individual needs. We can offer you the assurance that your family can continue to make ends meet if something happens to you and put a plan in place to ensure your assets go where they are most needed.
Some people try to write a will using an online service or on their own, but this is rarely a good idea. New Jersey has complex estate laws and you want to ensure your plan will stand up in court if necessary. You also want the execution of your will to go as smoothly and quickly as possible. The best way to ensure this is to have a will that follows all New Jersey laws and conventions.
