Protecting Their Future Inheritance with Trusts and Wills
- This event has passed.
Charles Fraser will be presenting an extended version of the talk he gave at The Autism Show in London. He will explain the steps families with an autistic child can take to ensure they are looked after following their parents’ deaths.
It can be quite overwhelming understanding the wealth of information available. Our solicitors are specialists in providing advice to parents of children with autism by protecting their future inheritance through trusts and wills.
Children with autism are unlikely to live independently when they reach adulthood and will probably require a level of support throughout their lives. As benefits are usually means-tested it is critical that parents do not leave a pot of money to their children as they risk losing their benefits and the support that comes with them. The impact of losing these benefits can be significant as the adult with autism may not have the mental capacity to manage the money or organise the care they need.
We can give you peace of mind and reassurance that any money you leave will not jeopardise access to benefits and the support they will need to thrive as an adult.
Protecting the future of your child is vital and we can support with:
- Lasting powers of attorney
- Court of Protection applications
After the talk, there will be an opportunity to ask Charles questions.
The webinar will be useful to the parents and families of children with autism. It is also applicable to families who have children with learning difficulties or other additional needs. Those working with children with autism or additional needs are also welcome to attend.
