Can’t agree on a legal guardian?

What happens when a divorce couple can’t agree on legal guardians for their children in the event of their death?  It is important, no matter how much you do not get along, to communicate with each other just this once.  You need to create a comprehensive plan that will protect your children in case something happens to you.

If something happens to you, in most cases, the child’s surviving biological parent will raise him or her – unless there is a good reason that should not happen.  The only reason this may not happen is if the surviving parent has a history of abuse or drug addiction.  However, it cannot hurt to name guardians anyway so your wishes will be taken into consideration.

If you are having problems appointing the proper guardians for your child in the event of your death, contact an experienced Riverside Family Law attorney who is committed to the outcome that best protects your interests and those of your child.
