COVID – 19 “Back to School” -  Preparedness for College Students (18 years or older) and other Young Adults

Will you be sending your child off to college this fall?  While there is a great amount of uncertainty as to what college campuses will look like this year, one matter that is certain is that when your child turns age 18 (including a child still in high school), you no longer have the right to make medical and financial decisions for your child.  As such, if your child would like you to be able to “legally” make decisions for him/her, in the event of an unexpected illness (or accident) resulting in his/her incapacity, then your child will need to create Durable Powers of Attorney.  With the concerns surrounding COVID-19, having a valid Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care may now prove to be more important than ever.  For a limited time, our law firm is offering both “Back to School – COVID-19 Preparedness Packages for Students (over age 18)” and “COVID-19 Preparedness Packages for Young Adults.” To learn more and/or to schedule an initial "virtual" appointment, please contact our office directly.
