Turning 18: Guardianship, Entitlements and Waiting Lists

First Children Services invites you to join a FREE webinar, presented by Jared B. Oberweis, Esq.,  Attorney at Hinkle, Prior & Fischer, P.C.

At age 18 (or age 21 in some states), a child is viewed as an adult, regardless of disability, and therefore is legally empowered to make decisions. Parents will be faced with decisions about guardianship and surrogate decision-making. In addition, the service delivery system changes dramatically as children exit the school system. Often, there are waiting lists for services, and federal entitlement programs, such as SSI and Medicaid, can be confusing and hard to access.

In this presentation, participants will learn about what to expect from the service system as a child transitions to adulthood and how to avoid common problems. This hour-long presentation includes time for a Q&A session at the end.

Jared B. Oberweis, Esq. concentrates his practice in estate and trust matters, guardianships, and adult services. Jared enjoys ensuring the rights of individuals with disabilities are protected. He writes and speaks on topics concerning the rights of individuals with disabilities and their families. Jared was admitted to the New Jersey Bar and Pennsylvania Bar in 2014 after receiving a Juris Doctorate from Duquesne University School of Law. At Duquesne University School of Law, Jared served on Duquesne Law Review as a senior staff editor. Prior to law school, he obtained a Bachelor of Science degree from University of Pittsburgh, graduating Cum Laude. Jared is currently a member of the Mercer County Bar Association and volunteers to provide pro bono services to the local community. Jared and his family actively support Special Olympics of New Jersey.

Attorneys at Hinkle, Prior & Fischer, P.C., have over 70 years of combined experience providing specialized legal services to families of children and adults with a wide range of disabilities, and seniors.  We have argued many of the precedent setting cases affecting individuals with disabilities in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
