Legal Custody after Death of Custodial Parent-

We live in Maryland. I suffered a well-documented abuse from my children's father and he is unfit mentally to raise them. He has abused them mentally during visitations in the past.

What do I need to do that will assure that my children's father will not be granted legal custody of our two children if I, (their Mother and full-custodial parent) should die? I want the children to stay with my husband (the step father) who has been raising them. They are 12 and 15 yrs. old.

Thank you very much
