What is a guardian?
A guardian is a person who you would like to look after any minor children you leave behind when you die.
Is a guardian clause legally binding?
No, a guardian clause is merely an indication of your preference of person to look after your minor children after you die.
Your appointed guardian is not obliged to accept the responsibility so you should discuss it with your potential guardians beforehand.
This clause will not give appointed guardians legal priority over another person legally responsible for your children.
Who should I appoint as guardians?
Appoint people you know well and trust to raise your children in the appropriate manner.
