w/ Amy Hsiao, Family Law

Wed, 7/12

12:45 – 1:45 p.m.

$15 per person

 

You Are a GREAT parent. But has something been left incomplete? Who Will Take Care of Your Kids if Something Happens to You? And Will They Be Cared For the Way You Want?

It’s very likely that you are one of the 69% of parents who have not named legal guardians for your kids yet.

Maybe you have named legal guardians, but you’ve made one of the six common mistakes that almost every parent makes when naming guardians, even after they’ve worked with a lawyer.

In this educational, informative, empowering workshop —for parents with children at home—local moms/dads and attorney Amy Hsiao will cover what you need to know about making sure your kids are taken care of by the people you want, in the way you want, no matter want. Amy will guide you to take charge and ensure you have done the right thing by your family.

During this workshop, you will discover:

– The 6 most common mistakes parents make when naming guardians, even when working with a lawyer — and how to fix them.
– How to choose the right guardians for your children and make sure your children are never taken from your home or placed with strangers if something happens to you.
– How to make sure your assets are immediately and privately available to the people you’ve named to care for your children.
– Why a Will alone is simply not enough to make sure your kids are taken care of the way you want, by the people you want, no matter what.
