If you have a disabled child and are worried about the future, call our office. When your child reaches the age of 18, you may need to be appointed as his/her legal guardian. Without such an appointment, once your child turns 18, you will not automatically retain your rights to oversee your child’s care.
As guardian, you will assume the legal capacity to render informed decisions on behalf of your child, such as where your child will live, what kind of care or supervision they will receive, including medical care, and managing their finances. Your child will give up certain rights, such as the right to vote or marry. Since becoming your adult child’s guardian is a big step, it is vital that you consult an attorney who experienced in these matters. Our central New Jersey office
