WHO TO CHOOSE
When it comes to appointing a guardian, there are many practical aspects to keep in mind.
Ask the person if they’re prepared to take on this responsibility. Do this before you nominate them in your will.
It must be someone you trust will take good care of your kids – and preferably someone who shares your values.
Talk about the involvement of other family members, especially when choosing guardians outside your immediate family circle.
Think what will happen if your appointed guardian gets divorced or leaves your town. It’s also important to include a second tier of guardians in your will in case anything happens to your appointed one.
Regularly review your choice of guardians because people’s circumstances change. If the person isn’t in a position to look after your child anymore you can nominate someone else.
