When a child with disabilities approaches age 18, parents and caregivers often find themselves surprised and overwhelmed to learn that they will soon lose the legal right to manage their child’s affairs or make key medical and financial decisions on the child’s behalf. Special Needs Planning is critical to ensure that parents can stay in control and access key benefits/resources that will be necessary to ensure a smooth transition into adulthood and beyond.
Parents, grandparents, and caregivers of children with disabilities are invited to attend a FREE educational workshop with attorney Lisa Golshani where they will learn how to navigate the complicated world of special needs planning in order to make the best decisions and prepare for the future, including:
- What is a Conservatorship?
- How to start the process as your child approaches age 18.
- How to determine if your teen needs a full or limited Conservatorship, or possibly a less intrusive alternative, to enable you to retain the legal ability to make medical, financial, and personal decisions when your child with disabilities becomes a legal adult.
- What to know about appointing successor conservators who will be responsible for the care of your adult child with special needs if you become ill, pass away, or can otherwise no longer do the job.
- How to ensure your child can live the lifestyle you envision for them if anything should happen to you.
