New Parents in Palm Harbor
Designate a Preneed Guardian
Designating a preneed guardian is essential as a new parent. This allows you to choose who will care for your child if you and the other parent pass away or become incapacitated. Without the designation in place, any interested party can petition the court to become the guardian of the property and the person. That means your child could end up in the care of someone who doesn’t share your parenting vision and values. Also, your child might not have a connection to the person, making an already horrific situation even worse.
You have two options for designating a guardian for your child. Most new parents choose to include it in their wills. You also have the option of filing a declaration of preneed guardian document with the court.
You might not realize this, but you can go beyond naming a guardian for your child with this document and include the names of people you don’t want to serve as guardians. Then, if your guardian isn’t available, you won’t have to worry about an unsuitable person stepping in to serve as the guardian.
