What is a Nomination of Guardian?

Often when Clients hire the Firm to draft their estate plan, the Attorney will recommend including a Nomination of Guardian document as part of their plan. A Nomination of Guardian is a document put in place to safeguard a Client’s wishes for who will act on their behalf if they become incapacitated. One of the goals of a proper estate plan, including Advance Directives and Durable Powers of Attorney, is to avoid the need for Court-appointed Guardianship. However, if Guardianship is needed, the Nomination of Guardian makes the Client’s wishes for who they would want to be appointed as Guardian known to the Court. A Nomination of Guardian allows you to proactively plan for unforeseen circumstances and to ensure that your loved ones can advocate for you.
