Planning For When Your Child Attains The Age Of Majority


Parents are usually relieved when their child turns eighteen (18) years old. One reason is that they no longer need to worry about having a guardian for that child in the event something happens to the parent(s).  By the same token, however, once the child becomes an adult under the law, the parent may experience difficulties in making medical and financial decisions for the child, and even in trying to obtain information regarding the child.  It is essential, then, for the parent to have a health care proxy, living will and power of attorney prepared for the child.  These documents need to be properly executed, thus giving the parent the ability to make health care decisions and assist with financial matters, notwithstanding the fact that the child is now an adult under the law.
