Last Will and Testament
October 15th, 2014
If you have children under 18, you should appoint a guardian in your Last Will and Testament. Otherwise, if you and your spouse die at the same time without such an appointment, a court will select a guardian to care for your children and manage their inheritance until they become adults. A trust can also be useful if you are concerned that the children may lack the maturity to handle their inheritance after age 18.
