Hi Maisyn,
Perhaps the easiest way is for the parents to indicate their desire in their Will. You can find a number of resources for creating a Will in our Bookstore and Will forms. Some legal plans also have Will preparation as a free member benefit.
For online articles, search ‘deceased parent child guardian’ using Legal.com’s Legal Research tool.
Hope this helps!
