In her article on MSN.com’s MoneyCentral, Karen Hube cites postponing estate planning as one of “New Parents’ Top 10 Money Mistakes.” In her online “Wills and Trusts Special”, financial guru Suze Orman states: “If you cannot agree on guardianship for your child, you will be leaving that decision to the state. The state will assign someone to care for your child. Be smart and make that decision before it is too late.” Advice on how to choose and nominate guardians for your children will be just part of Mr. Printz and Ms. Barron’s 2-hour seminar and workshop. Mr. Printz will discuss the questions most often raised by new parents: Who do I nominate as my child’s guardian? Should that person also control her money? Can my children stay in the family home, or will they be relocated? Ms. Barron will discuss educational financing, 529’s, and UTMA accounts. Mr. Printz has been an attorney for the past ten years, since graduating in 1999 from San Diego’s Thomas Jefferson School of Law in Old Town. The Law Office of Daniel K. Printz is located at 5631 Palmer Way, Ste. C, Carlsbad, CA 92010. Mr. Printz specializes in estate planning and probate, and for the past three years he has taught “Estates, Wills and Trusts” in the University of San Diego’s intensive paralegal program.
