Duggar family: future guardianship plans for the couple that has 19 children? That has to be a chaotic mess without a properly executed estate plan. In this article, we discuss the Bates and Duggar families and their potential plans for the future of their large families – should something happen to the children’s parents.
The Bates and the Duggars families are now tied as America’s largest families – both with 19 children. While meeting the needs of all of those children can be time consuming, we hope that both of these families have taken the time to put in place a plan for their children in case a tragedy should occur. What happens to that many children if the parents pass away without a plan in place? They would either be divided among various family and friends, if they were willing, or would become wards of the state. Without planning ahead, this is the possibility for any family – whether you have one child or 19
Duggar Family Potential Guardianship Issues For The Future
If you have minor children, you need to have a plan in place that dictates who will care for them if you no longer can. Ideally, you should also set aside funds to help with the raising of that child as their new guardians will be taking on those additional expenses. Part of loving and raising our children is that we provide for their needs, which also means ensuring their needs are met if we are no longer around.
