Washington, DC Guardianship & Conservatorship Attorney

When devising your estate plan, the care of your children is likely your foremost concern. Attorney Edward G. Varrone can advise you on making crucial decisions about the financial support, protection and guardianship of your children.

Choosing a guardian for your child
You should name a guardian who will raise your children according to your parental philosophies. The court will reject a guardian who is unwilling or unable to care for your child. Attorney Varrone suggests you name an alternate guardian to fulfill the role if your primary guardian choice is unavailable. He also recommends that you thoroughly discuss your decision with your chosen guardian to confirm the guardian is willing and prepared to accept the full responsibility of caring for your child as you see fit.

Importance of a will
Naming a guardian is especially important if you are a single parent or in case both parents die in a common incident. If you do not name a guardian, the court will appoint a guardian for your children, and might make an unacceptable decision. You can make your own parenting decisions by drafting a will and updating your will should your designated guardian die or become incapacitated.
