Lawyers Serving the Catawba Valley
If you have children under the age of eighteen, providing for them and keeping them safe is one of your top priorities. Estate planning when you have minor children presents different concerns than estate planning when your children are grown.
Attorneys David L. Isenhower and Susan Williams Matthews work with families in the Catawba Valley area to plan for their children's future needs, from financial security, to health care issues, to making sure they have an adult guardian to protect and raise them.
Our approach to planning for minor children begins with listening to your concerns and needs. Only when we understand your story do we begin to put in place a plan to achieve your goals, using tools such as:
Your needs may be specific and limited, such as creating a means for a caretaker to authorize medical treatment for your child when you are not available to do so. Alternately, your concerns may be longer-term and wider ranging, such as putting in place the legal ability to assume care for a relative's child and manage the child's assets in an emergency.
As parents ourselves, our commitment to protecting and caring for children is personal as well as professional.
We guide our clients through the process of identifying their needs, drafting documents to protect the children they love, and representing them in court when necessary. We take pride not only in the quality of our work but in the relationships we develop with our clients and their families. We are here to answer your questions and offer the support you need when planning for minor children. We invite you to contact us to schedule a consultation and learn more about how we can help you plan for your future and the future of the people you love.
