The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm Owner, Shannon Pawley, Discusses Important Legal Documents Parents Need To Have Before Their Kids Leave Home For College.

Estate & Asset Protection Attorney and Owner, Shannon Pawley, urges parents of college bound kids to take precautions and put legal documents in place to be able to care for them in the event their children become seriously ill or are involved in a serious accident.

DECATUR, GA, August 16, 2021: Shannon Pawley, Owner of The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm, has posted a new article on the law firm’s website entitled “Important Legal Papers You And Your College Bound Kids Need.” Ms. Pawley explains the importance of each of the three legal documents.

Pawley asks, “Are you sending your first child off to college this fall?” She continues adding, “Maybe you have a child that is going back to college for his or her second, third or fourth term or year. No matter if this is a first or not, if your kid is 18 you probably already know that they are considered adults and you have no legal agency over them. With that in mind,” Pawley states, “please consider the dilemma you would be in if your child were in a serious accident or became seriously ill and were hospitalized while away at school – or even while at home.”

According to Pawley, “You would have no legal recourse to find out what condition they were in or gain any information unless you have the proper legal documents filled out and signed by your child.” She emphasizes, “You can’t do this after the fact, it must be done before your kid goes off to school. In the best-case scenario both you and your child would have a copy of the requisite documents and the school they are attending would also have a copy on file.”

After reviewing each document, Pawley writes, “Of course, the hope is that none of these documents ever has to come into play. The best-case scenario is that your kid goes off to college, studies, plays, enjoys and stays healthy and out of harms’ way.”
