Declaration of Guardianship
Seek Legal Guidance from Our Katy Estate Planning Attorneys
A comprehensive estate plan includes more than a last will and testament. You should also be sure to include a declaration of guardianship document to tell the court who you want to serve as a guardian for your estate, your person, your minor children, or your incapacitated adult children in the event of your death. A “guardian” is someone who has the authority to make legal decisions on another’s behalf. A guardian may take the place of a minor child’s parents should their mother and father both become incapacitated or pass away, and it ensures the interests of incapacitated adults are protected, too.
While it is a very difficult and emotional decision to think about who would care for your children in the event of your death and the death of your child’s other parent, it is often the deciding factor encouraging young parents to complete estate planning. In Texas, parents may name guardians for their children either within their will and in a separate document.
