Parents of children with special needs often face challenging decisions and legal concerns when their children approach age 18. It may be essential for you to keep access to medical and financial information and retain authority to make certain decisions on your child’s behalf. The need to establish a legal guardianship arises under a range of other circumstances as well, when a parent or other family member suffers an illness leading to diminished mental capacity.
