When Your Child Has A Disability….
If you are raising a child with a physical or developmental disability, we understand the obstacles and difficulties you face on a daily basis. Between running to and from specialist’s appointments, IEP meetings, occupational and speech therapy and caring for your child’s basic needs, there is little time to take care of the tasks of today, let alone plan for tomorrow. But, as you already know, there are also legal and financial concerns that must be considered for the future such as:
- Who would raise your child if something unexpectedly happened to you and/or your spouse?
- How can you ensure enough money is left behind should your child require a lifetime of care?
- What happens when your child turns 18?
- How can you continue to make medical and financial decisions on his or her behalf? And,
- How can you ensure your child is not taken advantage of financially or emotionally if you are no longer there to protect him or her?
