Can you name a child in a will?
If you are planning your estate as the parent of a dependent child, you should definitely address the child in a will. You should nominate a guardian to care for the child after your passing, and this in an absolute must.
A guardian will look after the ward’s day-to-day needs on a personal level, and you could give a guardian the right to manage the child’s inheritances.
We should point out the fact that the probate court would step in to appoint a guardian if you do not name one in your will.
