If you have minor children, one of the most important reasons for having a will is to specify guardians. Guardians are the people who will actually raise your kids. You want to think about who has the same values, who has the same perspective on education, on religion, on medical care, all of those core things that make you and your family who you are. The only way to give direction to the court if you pass away is in a will. So if you do a will for no other reason, specify who will raise your kids. That’s important.
