Off to College: Important Legal Issues to Consider


Wednesday, August 1st, 6:30 p.m.


For families with college-age children, it is important to consider topics such as power of attorney for school grades/financial matters and health care rights. Once your child turns 18, legal matters change. Just because you pay the tuition doesn’t override the school’s privacy policy. Did your children leave you with a power of attorney? What’s your plan to pay for their expenses? It’s that time of year when these young adults either return to or begin college. Come hear advice from two professionals who can help with a smooth transition. Lisa I. Glassman is a lawyer with over 20 years of experience and Evan L. Wolk, CRPC© is a well-respected and experienced financial advisor. Registration required. Register here
