Free Legal Workshop for Families

Are you the parent or legal guardian of a disabled or seriously ill child?

  • How can you provide for your child’s future financial needs?
  • Do you know about special needs trusts?
  • What will happen when your child turns 18?
    • If you plan to make medical decisions for your child once your child turns 18, you must have a conservatorship. This is formal legal permission for one adult to make decisions for another adult. If you do not have a conservatorship, you will not be able to make medical decisions.

For all parents and legal guardians:

  • Who will care for your child if you die?
  • What will happen to your child if you become seriously ill or disabled?
  • Do you have a will?

Help is Available!
