How to Plan for the Future in South Florida if You Have a Special Needs Child That Is Turning 18
If you’re interested in estate planning in Miami, Florida, but don’t know where to start, we’ve got you covered!
In this video, Miami estate planning attorney Denise Jomarron addresses the unique concerns of parents with special needs children approaching adulthood. She discusses the significant legal and financial changes that occur when a special needs child turns 18.
At that age, children gain adulthood under the law but families still want to ensure their long-term care is protected. Denise outlines important estate planning tools parents can implement like Special Needs Trusts and Guardianships. These allow ongoing oversight while maintaining government benefits and support services crucial to the child’s well-being. However, Denise also stresses that if your special needs child is capable of having his or her own documents prepared, this process can be avoided completely, saving you both time and money.
