This episode sparked from the fact that Nick’s daughter, Cameron who is almost 18, and what she needs to have.

What estate planning documents does an 18-year-old need?

When your child becomes a legal adult in the eyes of the state there are some unique challenges that arise. Even though they are still young enough that you feel you want to help them make decisions, you don’t have the automatic default anymore to make medical or financial decisions for them. So, what are the types of documents they need to have in place if you want to still help them make these decisions?

They are Financial, Medica, and Hippa.
