Planning for Your Children

“Did you know that 69% of parents haven’t named guardians for their kids? And of the 31% who have, most have made 1 of 6 common mistakes? Schedule a Family Planning Session with us today, so we can fix those mistakes with you.”

Having a Will Alone Simply Does Not Ensure the Care of Your Kids If the Unimaginable Happens to You!

If you are a parent of minor children who are counting on you, your estate plan should ensure your children would always be taken care of by the people you want, in the way you want, no matter what happens.

One of our areas of greatest expertise is in planning for the well-being and care of the children you love – all the way from newborn to 18. If your child has a special need, we can plan for that too, into adulthood. You can solve that issue guided by one of our children custody lawyers.

Without Proper Planning, Here's What Could Happen

Your children could be placed into the care of strangers while the authorities figure out what to do (yes, even if you have a will in place and even if you have a living trust). No one wants their children in the care of a stranger.

Your children could be put into the custody of a family member who has good intentions but who you would never want raising your kids.

A judge who doesn’t know you or your family will decide who will raise your kids, even if it is the last person you would ever want.

Your family could get into a long drawn-out custody fight or there could be a challenge to the guardians you have designated.

Up to 5% of the value of your assets could be lost to court costs and other unnecessary fees through the probate process, a court process that can tie up your assets for years and deprive your kids of the resources they need to live comfortably.

When your kids turn 18, they get a check for whatever assets are left, no matter how immature they might be or what financial lessons they have not had a chance to learn yet.

Unscrupulous people out there find out when 18-year olds are getting that inheritance check by searching the public court records.

Unfortunately, the vast majority of estate planning attorneys do not address these issues and do not plan from a parent's perspective.

Yes, these things scare us too. That’s why we offer Pujol Law Kids with every estate plan we do for families with young children.


Pujol Law Kids is a set of instructions, legal documents and an emergency wallet card – all of which you need to have if you have kids at home who count on you for their well-being and care. That is why our legal guardianship attorneys will be working with you shoulder to shoulder.

If you are in an accident, Pujol Law Kids will make sure your children are never taken into the custody of Child Protective Services, strangers or the care of anyone you would not want simply because the authorities don’t have clear instructions from you. Our guardianship attorneys will always be there for you.

Pujol Law Kids  will ensure your children are raised by people you choose, not someone chosen by a judge who doesn’t know you.
