Wednesday, January 27, 2010

CARLSBAD, CA   4 January 2010 —  A new baby comes home with a host of legal and financial decisions to be made.  Local attorney and University of San Diego adjunct faculty member Daniel K. Printz will present “Wills, Trusts, and Estate Planning for New Parents” on Wednesday, January 27, at 6:30 p.m. at Scripps Coastal Medical Center  (2176 Salk Avenue, Carlsbad, CA 92008, South Entrance).   The seminar is hosted by the Parent Connection (formerly Las Madres) a non-profit parenting support network of more than 3,500 San Diego families.

In her article on’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 attorney Daniel K. Printz’ 1.5 hour seminar.  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?  Will my child’s property be lost to probate fees or taxes?  What financial decisions can I make now to protect my money for my children?

Mr. Printz has been an attorney for the past nine years, since graduating in 1999 from 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 two years he has taught “Estates, Wills and Trusts” in the University of San Diego’s intensive paralegal program.  Mr. Printz, his wife Erica, and their 2 ½ year old son Samuel live in the Old Creek neighborhood of San Marcos, just west of San Elijo Hills.  Mr. Printz can be contacted at (858) 740-4370 or by email at  Cost for the seminar is $10 per person – register online at:
