Something to think about: Most people tend to put off planning and assume that only elders need Estate Planning documents. In reality, everyone from age 18 to 80 and up needs to plan for the future!

The truth is that once children turn 18 they are considered adults in the eye of the law. If something were to happen to a college-age child, many parents would be shocked to find that due to strict HIPAA laws, doctors and medical professionals will absolutely refuse to talk to them without properly-drafted Powers of Attorney in place! Not a great situation to be caught in. If you have college-age children who will be leaving home in the near future, this is certainly something to keep in mind.
