KIDS PROTECTION PLANNING
Did you know that 69% of parents have not yet named guardians for their kids?
Having a Will Alone Simply Does Not Ensure the Care of Your Kids If the
Unthinkable Happens to You! If you are a parent of minor children (or those
with special needs), who are counting on you, your estate plan must begin
with your children would always be taken care of by the people you want,
in the way you want, no matter what happens.
At Krugler Law, one of our areas of greatest expertise is planning for the
well-being and care of the children you love.
Without proper planning, if the unthinkable happens to you, here’s what could
Your children could be placed into Child Protective Services (CPS) even if
you have a will in place; even if you have a living trust while your legal
documents or located or your family is identified. Or worse, your kids
could be left in the care of the one person in your family you would never
want to raise them;
A Judge who doesn’t know you, or your family, will decide who will raise
your kids, even if it’s the last person you would ever want;
Approximately 5% of the total value of your assets could be lost due to
probate, a court process that can tie up your assets for months or years
and deprive your kids of the resources they need to live comfortably;
When your kids turn 18, they get a check for whatever assets are left –
outright with no protection
Some unscrupulous people make it their business to review public records to find out what 18-year-olds are coming into money;
The vast majority of estate planning attorneys do not address these issues and do not plan from a parent’s perspective.
Yes, these things scare us too. That’s why we offer a Kids Protection Plan® with every estate plan we prepare for families with young children.
What is a Kids Protection Plan®?
A Kids Protection Plan® is a set of instructions, legal documents and even an ID card for your wallet, which you need to have if you have kids at home who count on you for their well-being and care.
If you are in an accident, your Kids Protection Plan® will make sure your children are never taken into the custody of Child Protective Services, strangers or the care of anyone you wouldn’t want because the authorities don't have clear instructions from you. And your Kids Protection Plan® will ensure your children are raised by people you choose, not someone chosen by a Judge who doesn’t know you.
