The idea of passing away while your children are still young is a frightening thought for most parents. No one wants to think about leaving their children and often parents will put off talking about and developing a plan in the unlikely event that something happens to them.
However, the unthinkable can happen and at Berg & Chmielewski, PC we want to help your family be prepared should that happen to you. Our attorneys will listen to your family situation and educate you on what will happen to your children in the event you pass away. We will explain the legal rights that different categories of people have, such as step-parents, grandparents, adult siblings, and named guardians. We will then discuss how those rights may impact your situation and work with you to develop a plan that best accomplishes your goals.
