Wills: Unmarried Person with Children

Will for an unmarried person with children. This Will form provides that an estate will pass to the child or children of the testator or to the issue (grandchildren) of any child who predeceases the testator.  If any child predeceases you (the testator) without leaving children of his or her own, then that child’s share will pass to your other child/ren.

You have an option to name a guardian for minor children and an alternate guardian.  You can also name a third alternate guardian, if your first and second choices are unable to act for any reason. You do not have to select a third alternate.

Note that naming a guardian for a child or children from a prior marriage is only effective if the parental rights of the other parent have been terminated by court order or other circumstances.

The Will nominates a personal representative (executor) and an alternate personal representative, if the first nominee cannot act. There is an option to name a third alternate if your first and second choices are unable to serve for any reason. You do not have to select a third alternate.
