Planning Lifetime Care of Children

Speak to Our Experienced Worcester Child Protection Plan Attorney

When it comes to building an estate plan, every family has different needs and priorities. If you have children, especially minor children, their needs are likely at the forefront of your mind. At The Law Office of Polly A. Tatum, we offer personalized legal guidance for those concerned with planning lifetime care for their children. One of our goals is to help make families with young children aware of the steps you can take for the future care of your minor children.

We understand that no one wants to think about the possibility of a serious injury or untimely death. However, it is crucial that you name a guardian and create a lifetime plan for your children in the event that the unthinkable occurs. Having a legal plan in place wherein you state who should be responsible for your children and how you would like your children taken care of is vital.

What Is a Kids’ Protection Plan?

A Kids’ Protection Plan provides more resources than a traditional estate plan, which can allow you to name a permanent guardian. Should something happen to you and Child Protective Services (CPS) were to come to your home, a Kids’ Protection Plan would protect them from having to be taken away. If you are no longer able to care for your child, your nominated guardian can provide permanent care for your child or care for them until their named permanent guardian can be there.

A few other situations that a Kids’ Protection Plan can also help prevent include:

  • Your children ending up in the custody of an unsafe or undesirable individual
  • A judge who doesn't know your story making decisions about your child's care
  • A custody battle between family members regarding your child
  • The assets you've left behind being lost to fees and court costs

Get a Head Start with Your Child's Protection

Any estate plan created by a family with young children should include planning for their future needs. In the event that tragedy strikes and you are no longer able to care for your children, you can have peace of mind that you've established a plan. Not every plan is made equal and even those made by other estate planning lawyers may not be comprehensive.

At The Law Office of Polly A. Tatum, we pay close attention to detail, ensuring that your Kids’ Protection Plan has all of the necessary safeguards and protocols. We can also ensure you have the necessary documents in hand in the event of a sudden incapacitating event.
