Facebook Live: How to Protect Your Child in College

 

Watch our Facebook Live with Lori Ashmore Peters and Chris Yates discussing ways to protect your child in college.

The legal age of majority in Texas, and in many other states, is 18.

Absent proper estate planning, there is no legal right for parents to make decisions for their children after they attain the legal age of majority.

We strongly urge our clients to have documents prepared that will allow the parents to act like “mom and dad” in the event of an emergency situation, disability or other incapacity—whether temporary or permanent.

We recommend having the following documents prepared:

Having these documents in place will save you time, money, and stress. Call our office for a complimentary consultation.
