Kids Protection Plan Personable & Client Focused

Establish a Kids’ Protection Plan

Call Our New York City Estate Planning Lawyer Today

If you die or become incapacitated and you do not have a will in place, the courts will decide with whom your children reside. Having a will that nominates specific, long-term guardians can ensure that your wishes are respected, but it may not be enough in the immediate aftermath of an unexpected accident. A kids’ protection plan fills the gap between your incapacitation and the appointment of their permanent guardian, enabling you to identify who will take care of your children immediately.

To speak with our estate planning lawyer in New York City today, call (646) 681-1977. We have same-day appointments available.

How Protection Plans Work

Do you have minor children at home? In the event of your sudden death or incapacitation, your children may be handed over to Child Protective Services (CPS) while a long-term guardian is appointed. You may know with whom you'd like your children placed, and you already may have nominated long-term guardians in your will, but without a child protection plan in place, it may be days or weeks before your children are released to your chosen guardians.

A kids’ protection plan provides:

  • A temporary guardian for your children
  • Permission for necessary medical treatment
  • Relevant medical information for your children

By establishing a child protection plan, you can ensure that your wishes are immediately honored and that your children do not have to go into foster care while the courts establish a guardian. Your kids' protection plan is registered in a national database, which the police have access to, and which can be immediately acted upon if you are suddenly unable to care for your children due to death or incapacitation.

Do You Live Outside the U.S. with Your Minor Children?

These child protection plans are crucial if you are living abroad, as the country you are living in may not have adequate public services available. Furthermore, your children may be subject to foreign custody laws or unable to travel back to the U.S. to be with family.

At the Law Office of Robert J. Maher, PC, we know how important it is that your children are well taken care of. A child protection plan can provide you with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that even if the unthinkable happens, your children will be immediately cared for.
