Discover how to take charge of your child’s future and build a fortress of protection that will last a lifetime.
As Parents with Children [with Special Needs], we must put in place a clear plan for the care of our children if something happens to us. This is critical.
Don’t just leave the care of your family and your assets to chance.
What would happen to your child with special needs if something happened to you?
What would happen to your other children?
What would happen to your most treasured belongings?
If you have children under age 18, you must give clear legal authority for designated caregivers to take custody of your children immediately if there is an emergency.
Once you’ve named guardians for your children, identify whether you need to do Future Care Planning for your child. If your child is an adult with special needs, you probably have a pretty good idea of both your child’s abilities and what kind of assistance they will need.
When your child reaches age 18, you will no longer be entitled to make decisions about your child’s finances or personal care unless you petition a judge to become your child’s legal guardian. Although your child might not be capable of making decisions about their well-being at age 18, the law presumes that your child is capable.
