Checklist: When Children Turn 18
Once someone is legally an adult, usually at 18 years old, parents’ legal rights to access the child’s medical, financial, and educational records are limited. Before a child turns 18, parents should talk to their children about the information they may still need to access. This can be especially important if a child is still receiving cancer treatment. This Checklist can help parents start that conversation. But be aware that your child may have their own preferences related to these topics.
