Your Baby & Toddler - - Feature -

To­day’s god­par­ents tend to be emo­tional pil­lars of sup­port rather than stand-in par­ents. Should both par­ents die, the per­son who will as­sume re­spon­si­bil­ity for the chil­dren is know as a “le­gal guardian”.

You can ap­point le­gal guardians in your will. Sim­ply visit your bank and see a coun­sel­lor who will help you draw up a joint will nam­ing your chil­dren’s le­gal guardians.

You’ll need the ID num­ber of your cho­sen guardian. The bank holds onto a copy of the will, so it will never get lost.
