A change in family dynamics, particularly the birth of a child, calls for a review of one’s estate planning documents. Most often, married couples wait until the birth of their first child before consulting with an estate planning attorney to set up their Estate. New mothers and fathers give reason that it is no longer “just me” in the picture. And, that is true. An effective Last Will and Testament or a Trust will take into account who will care for your child, or children, if both you and your husband die. Through a guardian clause, the maker of a Will can name an individual who will be responsible to care for the child. Often times, the maker of the Will names an individual that will take care of the child’s money, if money is left for the child. Many times a parent appoints separate individuals to care for the child and money, a belt and suspenders type of planning. An experienced estate attorney may craft provisions to protect your child’s assets until the child reaches a more mature age, as often times an 18-year-old may not be able to handle his or her own finances, especially a large inheritance, at such a young age.
