What is a Designation of Guardian for Minor Children?

This document allows you to appoint the individuals who you want to be the guardian of your children in the event of your incapacity or disability.

This document only applies to minor children. In Texas, a child is considered a minor if they are younger than 18 years old.

Designation of guardian for minor children is one of the most important documents in your Will package. If you do not appoint a guardian, it is the court that decides who will take care your children. 

Check with a qualified estate planning attorney to ensure that you have this document in place! Don't let the courts choose who takes care of your children.
