Sometimes you have to think about the unthinkable to ensure that your wishes are carried out.
Most people believe that naming godparents or even having a will is enough to ensure their wishes for their children are followed should the worst happen. Unfortunately, that’s not always so.
Without a Kids Protection Plan, the system could step in and circumvent your wishes. Your children could be placed with people you would never choose, or worse, be placed with Child Protective Services, even if only for a short time.
Without a written plan, people could challenge your chosen guardians and a long and unpleasant custody fight could ensue, diverting a significant portion of the gross assets you’ve set aside for your children’s futures into legal fees and court costs. Then, a judge who doesn’t even know you or your values will decide what happens to your kids.
It doesn’t end there because without a plan, your children will receive any assets you leave to them unrestricted and outright when they turn 18, regardless of how responsible they are.
