Georgia Parents of Graduating Seniors:
Did you know…
Now that your graduating senior is “legally” an adult, you can no longer make important medical or financial decisions on his or her behalf?
UNLESS you have these 3 things in place…… (see below to discover how EASY it is to legally intervene if your child is injured or otherwise unable to speak on his or her behalf!)
Your graduating senior may still be your baby, but in the eyes of the law he or she is now an ADULT!
That means you can no longer make important medical or financial decisions for your child without their permission.
But let’s face it….your job of being a PARENT doesn’t stop just because your child turns 18. If there’s a medical emergency or your child asks for financial help, you NEED the ability to cut through the legal red tape and get involved.
FACT: Doctors, hospitals or financial institutions will NOT bend the rules on this! It’s against privacy laws. You must have 3 KEY DOCUMENTS in place to make important medical or financial decisions on your child’s behalf (just imagine the nightmare of your child getting hurt hundreds of miles away at school and the hospital refuses to give you so much as a status update!).
I call these 3 key documents the Parent Sanity Protection Kit, as they give you the legal permission you need to HELP your child and avoid more gray at the same time!
- Advance Health Care Directive
- Financial Power of Attorney
- HIPAA Forms
As a graduation special, we are offering our Parent Sanity Kit for just $350. And, as a bonus, you will receive complimentary enrollment in DocuBank’s ICE program, which provides medical or emergency personnel with the information they need to make fast decisions for your child and keep YOU informed of any emergency situation at hand.
Graduation Gift for YOU, too, Moms and dads: Mention this blog post and receive aFREE Georgia Family Treasures Planning Session (normally $750) to go over YOUR will, trust or other legal documents! Having an “adult” child is a huge life-change for mom or dad too and your estate planning documents must be updated accordingly!
