Guardianship versus Powers of Attorney
When: October 14th from 7:00-8:30pm
Many special needs children continue to rely on their parents even after 18, a parent’s legal ability to make important decisions for their child ends when the child reaches that age and the right to make financial, educational, and medical choices shifts to the newly minted adult. This can be concerning for any parent but is especially problematic if you are a parent to a special needs child. There are options available under the law to ensure you can still make decisions for your special needs child even after their 18th birthday. Please join us as we explore these two options so you can better identify what works best for your loved one.
