How do I choose who will take care of my children if something happens to me?
In planning for children there are two main questions that one must ask. The first question is, “Who will take care of my children’s physical needs?” This is the role of a Guardian. The second question is, “Who will be responsible for managing the children’s inheritance until they are mature enough to manage it themselves?” This is the role of a Trustee. While the roles of a guardian and a trustee are both important, they require different skills. In order to pick the right person for the right job, it is important to know the duties each performs.
