I am here to offer advice and information and to help guide families through the special needs maze.
Melville, NY (PRWEB) November 07, 2013
From Guardianship LI services to Special Needs Planning, Craig Marcott is offering his years of experience to families in need across Long Island. There are plenty of ways to secure the future of a specials needs child, and seeking guardianship is one way to make sure this happens.
Once a child reaches the age of 18 in the State of New York, parents no longer have the legal right to make medical and dental decisions. When a child is intellectually impaired or developmentally disabled, parents may need to continue making residential, educational, and medical and dental decisions beyond age 18. This means parents may need to petition for 17-A guardianship.
“I know the importance of seeking guardianship—especially with the increasing emphasis on patient confidentiality and the reluctance of doctors and insurance companies to provide information to anyone not specifically authorized to receive it,” said Craig Marcott. “I am not a lawyer, but I understand the process and have experienced it first-hand with my brother, Scott. I am here to offer advice and information and to help guide families through the special needs maze.”
Guardianship LI offers parents a more affordable option when petitioning for a 17-A guardianship. Parents previously had only two choices—complete the onerous paperwork and petition themselves, or incur the expense of an attorney. Now, more parents are choosing a third option—using the services of someone like Craig Marcott.
Craig strives to make his guardianship service stand apart from everyone else by:
- making the guardianship service more personal
- offering consultations to help parents develop Action Steps
- moving quickly and efficiently to save families time
- making guardianship more affordable
- helping parents navigate the special needs maze
Judging by the response, it seems to be working.
