What is Standby Guardian Protection?

Who takes care of your child should something happen to you? Advanced estate planning today can give you peace of mind – knowing that if something catastrophic were to happen to you, your child can be raised by a family member or close friend of your choosing. The Schaller Law Firm can give you peace of mind by drafting a “Standby Guardian” designation that identifies who you want to act as guardian and raise your child if you die prematurely or suffer a catastrophic accident leaving you in an irreversible vegetative state (think car or truck collision). This is a key component of the Schaller Law Firm’s “New Parent Child Protection Plan.”

But accidents do happen, and good parenting requires you to protect your child with advanced legal preparation through the Schaller Law Firm’s “New Parent Child Protection Plan.”
