Who will care for your children?

Do you have children under the age of eighteen?  If so then you’ll need to decide who you wish to appoint as your children’s’ guardians.  This is the most common reason why younger parents of minors do not make wills, especially if they have had more than one child through more than one relationship.  They feel their situation is complicated, they can’t agree on whether to appoint family members or friends as guardians, so they do nothing.  They are not aware that should both parents die together, underage children can be made wards of court, which may involve ongoing social care, if there is no-one they deem to be suitable to act as guardians.
