Step 3: Discuss the responsibilities with your guardian
Once you've selected the right guardian for your children, set a time to meet with them to discuss whether they're willing to accept the responsibility.
Asking someone to care for your children in your absence is a deeply personal decision; in all likelihood, the person you select will feel honored by the responsibility you're entrusting in them.
At this time, you don't need to discuss the fine details of becoming a legal guardian. However, talk about the court processes that could be involved and your expectations for your child's upbringing.
Put your thoughts in writing to ensure the guardian is aware of your wishes for your children. More importantly, you'll need to express your decision to appoint a legal guardian in your Last Will and Testament WILL.
