Naming guardians in your Last Will & Testament is the wrong way to do it. Although it has been the traditional way of handling this important decision, it is not the right way. A will must be admitted to the court in a probate process which can take time. This could delay the appointment of your guardians. In the meantime, there is a possibility that the local social service agency may be designated to care for your children until the court reviews your will. No child should have to spend a minute in foster care when something happens to their parents. Guardianship should be established in a stand-alone document to avoid the delay of the probate process. The Good Parents Plan let's you do it the right way.
