When children turn 18 years old, they are granted sole ownership of their legal rights and protections. The hard reality is that this means parents no longer legally have any say over medical, financial, or legal decisions involving their newly adult child. Even if their child is in an accident or otherwise unable to make decisions for themselves, parents are not legally allowed to have access to medical records, speak to treatment providers, or stand in to make decisions on behalf of their young adult child.
Many parents are shocked to learn this, while others find out the hard way when their young adult child has a medical emergency. Suddenly, they discover themselves on the sidelines as medical providers refuse to speak to them about their child’s medical condition, citing privacy laws. The resulting situation is stressful and painfully frustrating, while any remedies are expensive and uncertain.
Thankfully, our free e-book, The Young Adult Protection Plan™, teaches you how to keep your young adult child safe even after they are no longer legally under your protection. It will also show you how you can create an emergency action plan so you can have the peace of mind that you will be able to continue to legally care for your child just as you’ve always been. Discuss the importance of a Young Adult Protection Plan with your child, whether they are already 18 or soon to be, so you can put the proper legal planning in place quickly. Should you want any assistance, we are happy to help.
