Choosing Your Child’s Guardian
As a parent, you want only the best for your child’s future. Among the things you may decide to figure out is your child’s guardianship. This can be uncomfortable considering the magnitude of making such an important decision. There are ways to potentially ease the process.
It’s not unusual for one of the parents to prefer that one of their family members become the child’s guardian. However, this may not necessarily be in the child’s best interests. Hence, it’s important to discuss this with the spouse and take into consideration factors such as whether the prospective guardian already has children or what their financial status is. You’ll also need to factor in what qualities are important to you. If you’ve raised your child in a spiritual or religious household, for example, you may wish to find someone who shares similar beliefs.
Once you’ve decided on who is the best person to become your child’s guardian, make sure to discuss this with the person before moving any further. While you may think you’ve found the right guardian, the person may not be comfortable taking on such a lofty role. It’s always a good idea to have at least two people in mind.
