Caring for Dependent Adult Children

As parents, we all hope that – if nothing else – our children will grow up to be able to look after and provide for themselves. But of course, this is not always able to be the case.

Aside from the immediate challenges that this can present, the desire/need to make long-term provision for the child, can weigh heavily upon parents. Oftentimes, this weight is added to by question of where, how and to what extent the child’s siblings can also fit into the equation.

These are not easy conversations to have.

Consequently, it can be tempting to simply ignore the issues, or else to impose a solution that sounds good, but doesn’t actually address the legal and logistical details required.

At Lucas and Lucas we know every client is an individual who is dealing with their own unique set of circumstances, and we consider every problem on the basis of its own unique set of facts.

We can help you to identity and isolate the key issues, present you with and advise you in respect of the various options, and ultimately help you to formulate a plan.
