Considerations for Choosing a Guardian


How can I select the right guardians for my children?

Becoming a parent is a joyous experience, but also one that requires planning for the future. One question new parents often ask is "who will take care of my children if I die?" For this reason, it is essential for new parents to create a will, which is the only way you can select guardians for your children.

While naming guardians seems straightforward, couples may not agree, and the interpersonal dynamics among family members can be complicated. Nonetheless, it is critical for each parent to communicate openly, explore their values, overcome any disagreements and reach a consensus. By planning ahead, and carefully considering your options, choosing the right guardians can make a big difference in the life of your children.

Eight Common Estate Planing Objectives Of Married Couples

Lewis Saret (Forbes.com) has published an article entitled Eight Common Estate Planning Objectives Of Married Couples” (May 13, 2014). Provided below is a summary of the article from Forbes.com:

 

Eight Common Estate Planing Objectives Of Married Couples

If you asked 10 different couples what their estate planning objectives are, you would probably receive 10 different answers.

Upon deeper probing, you would discover that most married couples share the same basic estate planning objectives.

Knowing these objectives help both the couple and their estate planner determine what might be the best way to structure their estate plan. 

The most important estate planning objective for most married couples is to ensure that their loved ones are provided for if one or both spouses become incapacitated or pass away.

To accomplish a couple's estate planning objectives in a cost-effective manner inherently requires that future expenses be taken into consideration as well as the cost and time spent implementing the estate plan.

Alzheimer's Horrors

The Tampa Tribune has published an editorial article entitled “Editorial: Confronting Alzheimer's Horrors” (June 26, 2014). Provided below is a summary of the article from TBO.com.

Alzheimer’s Horrors

Gov. Rick Scott and state lawmakers launched an Alzheimer’s research program with $3 million available for research this year, however this represents just a fraction of what is needed to combat a disease that robs individuals of their memory and one that creates enormous hardships and expenses for family members.

Statistics show that one in 40 Floridians suffers from Alzheimer’s, the state currently holds 10% of the U.S total of 5.4 million individuals suffering from this disease. The number of Alzheimer cases in Florida is expected to grow 40% by the year 2025.

The cost in the state of Florida for dementia is estimated to be more than $15 billion. A study last year found that the cost range for dementia was from $157 billion to $215 billion a year, which is more than the costs of cancer or heart disease.

David Morgan, CEO of USF Health Byrd Alzheimer’s Institute in Tampa says “Alzheimer’s research is an investment that will save us from the growing astronomical costs of this disease on Florida’s families and the state’s economy.”
