Catching Your Student on the Fly
With the holidays arriving, you no doubt will be busy with events planning. One event might include the visit from your college student (back from college – complete with their laundry and a new friend).
During that visit home, you just might be able to ‘catch them on the fly’ to have them sign some important legal documents. Your child may have done this before they left for college, but you are probably one of the few families who considered preparing legal documents amidst the flurry of activity surrounding the college bound.
Now that your college student is settled into their new life, the timing is good to have a brief discussion about certain legal documents for them.
Which legal documents are important for your child to have while attending college? Two “must-haves” are the durable Power of Attorney and a health care proxy.
This is particularly urgent if your student is residing out of state, away from your home.
If they are in a foreign country or plan to do foreign exchange credits there are other issues for you to consider.
The time taken to consult with an experienced attorney could prevent difficulties in the future and offer you and your child certain legal protections should the need arise.
