A good estate plan makes provisions for all important aspects of your life, not just your finances. One of the most important things that parents can plan in advance is what will happen to their minor child in the event that both parents pass away or become incapacitated. In Texas, parents can prepare a declaration of appointment of guardian for a minor child. This declaration allows parents to plan what will happen to their minor children in the event of such emergent circumstances. Such a document limits family disputes as to where the children should go in the event of unexpected circumstances. The declaration of appointment of Guardian for a minor child is an important part of any estate plan for parents with children.
