Has anyone done this?
I'm trying to get our legal documents in order and would love to hear how other people have handled this.
So far I think that DH and I will both need wills, to check our life insurance policies, and to decide on the legal guardian(s) that our child would live with if something were to happen to us. Am I forgetting anything?
How did you decide who your children would go to? We're torn between my parents and my SIL for various reasons. DH's parents are already well into their 70's so that kind of rules them out, but otherwise they would have been great 'candidates' :) My parents would definitely think that they're first in line, so if we were to choose SIL we would need to break the news to them, any ideas for this? If we don't mention it, they will definitely ask about it.
Does your child's potential guardian match up with who you chose to be your their godparent/s (if you decided to go the godparent route)?
