Q: I want to make sure my child would be looked after by the right person if I died. How can I ensure this happens?
A: The best way to make sure your wishes are carried out is to appoint a testamentary guardian in your Will.
As long as this person is at least 20 years old at the time of your death, they will automatically become your child’s guardian if you pass away while your child is under 18.
