Leigh Hiltion, Denton Estate Planning Lawyer
Did you have a good Valentine's Day?

I was thinking about how we show our families that we love them. James and I went to a marriage conference a few years ago and one of the sessions was on the 5 Love Languages®. The session talked about how we communicate that we love someone. According to this seminar, the following are our 5 basic languages we use to tell/show someone we love them:

  • Words of Affirmation
  • Acts of Service
  • Receiving Gifts
  • Quality Time
  • Physical Touch
Another way you can communicate your love to your family is by having a well drafted estate plan. You have worked your whole life to make sure your family is taken care of; make sure they’re still taken care of after your life.

Read more about showing your family you love them with an estate plan on Leigh's blog.

What happens after my child with special needs turns 18?

Parents of children with special needs should be concerned with who will make medical and financial decisions once the child turns 18. Once a child reaches 18, the parents can no longer legally make decisions for them. The child is presumed be an adult and therefore have the ability to make his or her own decisions. There are several ways you can continue to make important decisions for your special needs child after he or she turns 18.

If your child is not capable of making personal or financial decisions, you can petition the court to be appointed the adult child's guardian. The downside is that guardianship requires a court process, which can be time-consuming, costly, and emotionally difficult for the child with special needs and the family.
