  • Nope just parents grandparents great grandparents aunts uncles cousins and tons of extended family that loves them very much and would drop anything to take care of them in the event of mine and DH's death. But I do have a will that states who I feel my children should go to. Don't know if a judge would really care after I'm gone but I try

  • God Parents are in charge of the childs religious education ONLY, they do not take the child in case of the parents demise. You must name a guardian take your child if something were to happen to you. It can be the same person, but if you do not have a guardian appointed, the child will go to next of kin even if they have God parents

  • Yes. We even have a will in the event something happened to us. God forbid, but at least the children will have a plan.

  • Yes, but they might as well not. We didn't really know of anyone to ask, when my kids were baptized. My priest suggested someone to us. They must have had had a different term for god parents than us. They have seen my three kids once in the past 6 years.

  • Nope. Godparents are a religious thing. We're atheists.
