Parents of young children need a will more than anyone else, but are least likely to have one. It is important to protect minor children by appointing a guardian of your choice and to protect your children’s inheritance by creating a trust for their benefit. This class will provide an overview of estate planning and probate administration in Massachusetts, including the pitfalls of not having a will. Participants will leave with a health care proxy and emergency guardianship proxy,which allows parents to appoint a temporary guardian in the event the parents become incapacitated or otherwise unable to care for their children.
