Newport Beach, CA (PressExposure) December 07, 2009 -- On the heels of releasing their best-selling memoir about their experience after the death of both of their parents, Liz and Diana Welch, authors of the âThe Kids Are All Rightâ, have partnered with Personal Family LawyersÂ® throughout the United States to ensure all parents know what they need to do to make sure their kids would never be left without a clear plan if anything happens to their parents.
The four Welch siblings ranging in age from age 8 to age 19 were split up after the death of their mother, soap star, Ann Williams. While itâs true the Welch kids did turn out even better than all right in many respects, they canât help but wish their mother had planned better for their care, which became nearly impossible once she was diagnosed with cancer.
With the objective of ensuring that no children ever again are left without a comprehensive plan for their care, Liz and Diana Welch talked at length with nationally recognized legal expert and founder of the Family Wealth Planning Institute, Alexis Martin Neely. During this talk, the Welch sisters recounted the painful loss of their parents within years of each other, how they fared in the absence of guardianship directives, and what it was like for the four Welch children to be separated after the death of their parents. They also discussed what parents need to know about naming legal guardians and resources for getting the process started totally free.
âEspecially in times of economic hardship, many parents think drafting a will or naming guardians for their kids is a âluxuryâ and out of the question. But as the Welchâs story makes clear, itâs far more expensive and painful for children be left as orphans and financially uncared for than it is to sit down and draft these documents with a lawyer in the first place,â says Darlynn Morgan, Orange County Trust and Estates Lawyer.
In honor of the Welch siblings and their new book, Personal Family LawyersÂ® throughout the United States are offering a free Family Wealth Planning Session (including guardian nominations) to parents at http://budurl.com/PersonalFamilyLawyer. Use the certificate code Welch.
âI want to ensure no children in our neighborhood are left without a plan for their care no matter what. Itâs my pleasure to offer this gift in honor of the Welch siblings and their new book.â says Darlynn Morgan, Estate Planning Attorney.
