What happens in my will if my children are underage minors?
Well if you die with minor children and you are leaving property to those children the personal representative of your estate has some flexibility in terms of what to do with your assets in terms of using those assets for the benefit of your children. In that case a guardianship will probably have to be done for your children to have some court control over the assets in that case. That’s why a revocable trust is usually the better way to go when you have minor children because in that case your assets will already be in the trust or they can be left to the trust. The trustee is already there managing the assets for your children without the necessity of a guardianship.
