When typically-developing children turn eighteen, they have reached a recognized legal milestone and are considered adults. At that age, they are considered legally competent to make significant life decisions independently, including how to earn, save and spend money; whether to seek medical attention; what type of post-secondary education or training to obtain; what occupation to seek; and how to conduct oneself in public or private. For young people who lack the cognitive capacity to make these decisions, however, parents may seek the legal right to continue in their capacity as guardians of their child and to retain decision-making capacity over their child.
Sussan & Greenwald focuses exclusively on advocating for the rights of children with special needs throughout the state of New Jersey.
