I have recommended Deborah Jacob’s in the past, but Advice for New Mothers – and Procrastinators is spot on. Covering all of the important estate planning issues for young parents, her advice mimics many of the suggestions I give to clients who have minor children. She provides an option for parents who cannot decide on a guardian, links to the Mummy Manual (an example of the instructions parents can write for guardians), and covers a few other important topics regarding trusts for minors and issues to consider when parents are not legally married. For being a quick read, the article has a lot of relevant information on issues that affect many of my clients. So go on, read it, and then call an estate planning attorney.
