The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm Owner, Shannon Pawley, helps parents expect the best by having a proactively created estate plan in place for worst-case scenarios.
DECATUR, GA, July ••, 2023: Shannon Pawley, Owner of The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm, has posted a new blog on the law firm’s website entitled “Proactively Create An Estate Plan That Addresses Your Minor Children’s Needs In The Worst-Case Scenario,” in which Ms. Pawley acknowledges the relief parents feel when they put a plan in place.
Pawley writes, “In life, it’s always important to expect the best. Likewise,” she adds, “it’s also important to have a plan in place for the worst-case scenarios. This is especially true when you have minor aged children, and when you have children with special needs.” Pawley emphasizes, “You want to make sure you have a proactively prepared estate plan in place which addresses your children’s care in the rare and unlikely event that the unthinkable happens and both parents die or become mentally incapacitated.” According to Pawley, “It happens more frequently than anyone wants to acknowledge or believe. The chaos and confusion that ensues can negatively affect your children for the rest of their lives.”
“When parents die without a well thought out estate plan naming a guardian for minor children,” Pawley states, “the courts step in to choose a surviving family member to take custody of the children. This could be someone that you would not want to be caring for your children.”
