Plan for your children far into the future

One thing that many people don't think about when they are dealing with divorce and custody issues is how future plans could impact those issues. If, for example, you spend a great deal of time and effort fighting for sole custody of children because you don't think they would be safe with the other spouse, you probably don't want to leave their care up to chance if something should happen to you.

Even if you aren't in such an extreme situation, you still might want to ensure some of your wishes are adhered to as your children grow, even if you aren't still there. If you have joint custody, for example, you might want to try to ensure that your children will still see your parents on a regular basis or be involved with your side of the family should something happen and full custody go to the other parent after you are gone.

These types of matters can be handled through a combination of family and estate law. If you have sole legal custody, then guardianship documents can help lay out who will care for your minor children in the event of a tragedy. If your custody situation isn't that cut-and-dry, then you might need to involve both estate planning measures and family law tools to get the job done properly.

Our firm is experienced in both areas of the law, so we can bring experience and tools to all these situations. We work with you to understand your current and future custody goals and create a legal foundation that supports them.
