Young Adults (age 18+)

Essential Legal Planning For Every Young Adult Over The Age Of 18

Once your child turns 18, you lose the legal ability to make decisions for your child or even to find out basic legal, financial or health care information. 

Like most parents, you may be surprised to learn that if your 18 year old “child” had a medical emergency while away at school without the proper legal documents in place, you may not be able to speak to the doctors. Instead, you would have to go to court and ask a Judge’s permission to obtain information about your own child’s medical condition or to be able to make decisions about their treatment.

These 3 key documents are a part of our “Graduate’s Planning Kit” – they give you the legal permission you need to HELP your child in an emergency!

* A Heath Care Proxy 

* HIPAA Authorization 

* A Durable Power of Attorney 

We are happy to get your young adult child’s estate planning started.  Give our office a call today at (978) 263-6900 and ask to speak with our Client Services Coordinator – she will let you know the next steps.
